What’s GREAT This Week?
AVOCADOS – as we welcome back Doug and Blanche Narbey with their new season Lamb Hass avocados. This variety is a smaller growing tree than the regular Hass but is known to fruit more heavily as it matures. Its flesh is a pale green colour with a creamier consistency than its common Hass relative but it still features that slightly nutty and creamy taste. We love that Doug can tell you all about how he grows his diverse range of avocados that includes Fuertes, Pinkertons, Sheppards and Hass.
