October 25 Produce List & Recipes

WHAT'S IN MY BASKET?

Avocado - Picked hard for easy distribution, but will ripen soon in your fruit bowl, especially next to bananas and even sooner in a brown bag

Sharlyn Melon or French Cantaloupe - Tastes like a cross between Cataloupe and Honeydew, mild flavor, considered a delicacy

Onion

Eggplant

Mexican Tarraon

Zucchini

Pineapple & Strawberry Guava

Lemons

Peppers (ration)

Carrots

Oregano

Lettuce Mix

Basil

Persimmon - There are two types of persimmon, Hachiya and Fuyu.  You received Hachiya this week. Great way to enhance the flavor is to take a free leaf from the mexican tarragon (the herb with the little yellow flowers) and put it in your mouth with a bite of the fruit.

Green Beans (ration)
