Produce Notes: June 26, 2019

What says summer more than sweet, juicy watermelon? Pick up a whole or a half (or a quarter - just ask a member of our Produce team to help you get the size you’re looking for!) of Black Seedless Watermelon at our Super Fresh Deal price, or just grab and go with our new Organic Watermelon Juice! Find both in our Produce section. Watermelon has a lot more going for it than just water - with high levels of vitamins C and A plus moderate amounts of potassium, fiber, calcium, iron, and even protein, this antioxidant rich fruit is a summer all-star! Make like an Egyptian and enjoy this very special berry - seeds, leaves, and paintings depicting watermelons dating back 5,000 years have been discovered in excavations of Egyptian tombs! Try pickling or cooking the rind to use it all up. 

If you’re craving a bit more crunch, why not reach for a Fuji Apple? Known for their sweet and crisp flesh, these Fresh Deal favorites are high in water and fiber - just be sure to leave the skin on! The pectin found in apples may also act as a prebiotic, feeding the “good” bacteria in your gut. Speaking of sweet, California-grown Strawberries are nearing peak volume! Whether you eat them by the handful, throw them in your smoothie, or dip them in dark chocolate, these vitamin-C packed low-carbohydrate berries are rich in antioxidants. In other fruit-news, California-grown citrus is winding down, melons are coming in sweet, and stone fruit supply remains steady but won’t last forever, so enjoy those sweet nectarines now! 

Bi-Color Corn, Green Beans, and Red Potatoes round out our Fresh Deals in steady supply and great taste, ready for your grill or your salad! Did you know that red potatoes have more potassium than bananas, while one cup of green beans provides almost 20% of your daily vitamin K, important for healthy bones? Try roasting both on a sheet pan with your favorite protein at 425°F for a quick-and-easy summer supper. 

Finally, a celery update: while supply has improved, demand has continued to rise as more and more people discover the benefits of the fibrous stalks and their flavorful juice. Much of the cost appears to be demand driven, and the growers who didn’t anticipate the demand are now planting more celery than ever. Typically, when growers underestimate demand they then overcorrect by planting more than there is a market for: expect prices to remain volatile as we all figure out the new normal for celery!
