Grown by Steven in Bakersfield, California.
Tahitian Pomelos are just in from Steven in California’s Central Valley. This citrus variety offers bright, tart juice with melon and lime-like flavor and meaty flesh carrying a floral aroma and tempered bitterness. Right now, they have some green and haven't yet reached full sugar levels, but as the season progresses, expect yellow skins with lots of sweetness.
While Tahitian Pomelos are typically heavily seeded, Steven goes through labor-intensive practices to ensure a seedless fruit. During the blossom period, he covers his trees with netting to protect the blossoms from pollinators as Tahitian is a self-infertile variety, which means it needs to be cross-pollinated to produce fertile, full-size seeds. Thanks to Steven’s hard work, we get these seedless for a more enjoyable eating experience.
Grown in Fresno County, California
It's time for Hachiya Persimmons from Fresno County, as cold temperatures make the fruits convert their bitter tannins into palatable sugars.
With Hachiya, a bit more patience will go a long way. This variety has an initial astringency that lessens with time, and these are best enjoyed after a secondary ripening until they are sagging within their own skin. The result: Extremely sweet, honeyed flavor and soft, jelly-like flesh.
Grown by Max & Maria in Hudson, New York
Last week, Max and Maria harvested the last of their Tendersweet Cabbage. As temperatures dip below freezing, frost damages the remaining plants.
Tendersweet Cabbage is a round, slightly flattened variety with large peelable leaves ideal for wrapping, stuffing, and raw applications. Storms mean the couple was three to four weeks late planting a large portion of their brassicas and succession crops, which has meant a slightly longer season into December.
Go DeeperSee all
We exist to fix the food system.
People are more cut off from the origins of their food than ever. This makes flavor, nutrition and farming practices that protect the planet, almost impossible to find.
By working directly with growers, we create a more sustainable way forward for farming. By giving everyone the tools to understand the power of our food choices, we empower everybody to become drivers of change.
Now is the time for action. Join the food system revolution.
