Padrón Peppers

Just arrived!

10th Mar 2021 | Fresh Produce

Now available from our Produce Department! 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.

Donut Nectarines

Locally grown!

28th Jan 2021 | Fresh Produce

Also known as a Flat or Saturn Nectarine, this type of fruit has a flattened appearance that is similar in shape to a donut, thus the name. Donut Nectarines which look somewhat like donut peaches have a higher acid to sugar ratio than a peach but are very sweet flavored. In addition, the Nectarine will typically have a greater amount of red skin coloring with a firm and more dense texture on the inner flesh. The Donut Nectarine is a good snacking fruit or a flavorful addition to salads, desserts, crepes, and many other foods using fruit.
