Organic Honeynut Squash
Be on the lookout for a cool new variety of hard squash this September and October from organic farms in Pennsylvania and New York – Honeynut Squash!
Like a crunchy pear? Bosc is the right variety for you! Organically-grown Bosc Pears are now in peak season as orchards in Oregon and Washington begin to pack their fall harvest.
You won’t find these everywhere, but if you do find them at a natural foods store, food co-op or other specialty retailer – be sure to try them this October: Organic SweeTango Apples from Washington.
Attention Apple Lovers: Honeycrisp Apples are back in season and the good ones are here! Honeycrisp Apples started coming off the trees in a few orchards around the country in late August, but the Honeycrisps available for late September and early October are some of the best.
Apple-lovers – you’ve gotta try this one. My kids went crazy for SweeTango when they tried their first ones two Octobers ago and we plan to enjoy them again this year!
Spaghetti Squash is in peak season in many growing areas of the country like the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, Mid-West and more during September, October and November, making it one of the best times of the year to enjoy this unique hard squash at affordable prices and great quality.
Are you missing out on a delicious October treat? Most people pass by the Black Grapes in favor of Green or Red types on display in the produce department. Admittedly, I often do too. That is until Fall arrives; then I seek Black Seedless Grapes out since that’s when they are at their very best!
Fall is a great time of year to cook with Baby Potatoes! Harvests in prime growing areas around the US and Canada (like Bakersfield, CA and Prince Edward Island, Canada) are producing high quality, tasty and convenient small-sized Red, Gold, White, Blue and Purple Baby Potatoes for culinary enjoyment.
Fall and winter are peak seasons for Organic Rutabagas from many regions like New England, the Upper Mid-West and the West Coast – so expect good quality and value pricing.
