Produce Notes: June 5, 2019

While we may be deep in June gloom, summer is coming, and your body will thank you for feeding it free radical-fighting antioxidants while you’re enjoying the beautiful outdoors! When being kind to yourself is as easy as munching on some antioxidant-rich blueberries, why not stock up? Organic California blueberries are our Super Fresh Deal this week in 6oz and 18oz containers (while supplies last!) and any that don’t immediately go into your granola (or pancakes) will freeze beautifully. Heads up: blueberries were impacted by the unseasonal rain but supplies remain steady, and warmer weather is expected to have berry production back at full swing!

 

Speaking of antioxidants, kale is packed with them, as well as being rich in vitamins A, K, and C and a great source of plant-based calcium, and is also a Fresh Deal this week - so many reasons to eat your greens! Zucchini is another antioxidant-rich Fresh Deal in strong supply, great for making raw noodles or throwing on the grill. Did you know that zucchini is rich in vitamin C when raw and in vitamin A when cooked?  

 

Stone fruit is looking good and we hope the it stays abundant through the season, though this abundance may be an indication that supply is peaking early - fingers crossed! Apricots, nectarines, and peaches are in strong supply while cherries - which have suffered because of the unseasonably late rains - are getting a little bigger but continue to be volatile in supply and price. Plums are looking strong, and Spring Splendor black plums (aka Flavorosa pluots) have landed right in our Fresh Deals! Look for deep purple skin with juicy red flesh.

 

We have more variety of melons from California’s southern desert regions, including that most succulent of muskmelons the cantaloupe! Rich in beta carotene (one study found orange-fleshed melons have the same amount of beta carotene as carrots!) and great for hydration, try cantaloupe in sweet or savory preparations - try roasting it for an unexpected treat! The sugars caramelize while the flesh relaxes, making it a great topping for everything from oatmeal to ice cream.
