Sweet Celebration is one of a new generation of red seedless grapes with excellent eating qualities. Its size is medium to large with the colour being a pink-red to magenta-red. Its texture is crisp with very little mouth-feel from the skin, and the taste is nicely balanced between sweetness and acids. This is a very sweet grape, but with the acid balance, may have wider appeal. Firm texture with crunchy skin, wonderfully juicy & deliciously sweet. Now available from our produce department!
Pigface is a salty-sweet fruit with an awkward name, but it's all kinds of delicious. That somewhat unfortunate name is apparently a reference to its looks: the pigface plant's flowers are said to resemble a pig's face - perhaps you might need to use your imagination here. It is also known as karkalla, ice plant or even the beach banana. The fleshy, juicy leaves have a slightly salty taste and because of this it makes for a great salt substitute - it works wonders in salads, and as a great accompaniment to meat, seafood or even egg dishes - perhaps your next breakfast addition?

Heirloom tomatoes are old open-pollinated tomato varieties that were grown before world war II. Or as Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary states “a horticultural variety that has survived for several generations usually due to the efforts of private individuals”. In general heirlooms are touted for their superior and complex flavors and equally for their fragility and perishability. For this reason they are best eaten straight!

Sugarloaf cabbage is smaller with a distinctive conical shape. It has a sweeter flavour and is ideal raw in salad. A Sugarloaf is not just any cabbage – it’s the adored variety found in Denmark and has a loose-leaf structure more similar to a butter lettuce - it’s sweet, and when charred becomes more interesting. Danish chef Bente Grysbæk adds a peppery grating of fresh horseradish, her fast version of preserved lemon using just the rind …plus lashings of burnt butter - the result is a taste sensation!

Pimientos de Padron, the Padron chilli is most commonly consumed when small and green, when it has a fresh and sweet flavour. It is traditionally sauteed in olive oil and sea salt, and served in tapas bars across their hometown of Spain. When fully mature, they are red in colour and much spicier than their green counterparts. Whilst generally a mild chilli, measuring in between 500 to 2500 Scoville Heat Units, the occasional rogue Padron has earned this chilli the nickname of the 'spanish roulette' as some individual pods are significantly hotter.
Breadfruit is a member of the Jackfruit family, and is native to the South Pacific. Breadfruit has a thick, warty, greenish skin and white starchy flesh with a bread-like texture and tastes sweet when eaten ripe. It is normally eaten as a vegetable and can be peeled and boiled, roasted or fried like potatoes, baked whole in the oven or barbecued. Breadfruit seeds are used in a similar way to Jackfruit seeds. If breadfruit is allowed to ripen, the flesh becomes light yellow, soft and very sweet. Now available in our produce department!
