Artichokes are an edible member of the thistle family and actually the immature bud of what would be a large sunflower-like blossom if not picked for consumption! We now have stock of the purple variety! This popular vegetable does not lose its vibrant colour when cooked and is prized for having a slightly more pronounced nutty flavour than its green globe cousin.
The dark purple adds an unexpected splash of color when served. Artichokes can be a meal in itself, prepared simply - just steamed, the leaves plucked then dipped in garlic-butter. The meaty base of the globe is called the heart and is considered a culinary delicacy.

Nothing says Spring like an arrangement of bright and gorgeous tulips, and even though it's not Spring just yet this weekend we were lucky enough to have received a large delivery of fresh tulips straight from the farmers, we're selling these beautiful bunches at $19.95 while stocks last. Tulips are sturdy flowers that can last up to 10 days after cutting if you know how to care for them correctly. When shopping for tulips, you may be tempted to buy the tulips with fully-opened, vibrant colored petals. This would be a fine choice if your tulips were for a "wow" one night occasion, however if you prefer them to last a long time, choose tulips that are still tightly closed with some green buds that aren't fully coloured yet. The flowers will open over the course of a few days, giving you more time to enjoy them.

Ranked by the Guinness World Records, the Carolina Reaper has beaten itself and is officially the Worlds Hottest Pepper! The Carolina Reaper has a unique stinger tail that is unlike any other pepper. It gets this insane heat from being a cross between a Pakastani Naga and a Red Habanero. A pepper’s heat is measured in Scoville units. A jalapeno measures 8,000 Scoville units, the Carolina Reaper measures 2.2 million and the Scorpion measures 2 million. The next pepper down on the scale is the Ghost pepper at 1 million. If you are brave enough to give it a try, it is available in our produce section!
