The gorgeous weather has jumpstarted local crops; beautiful Jersey asparagus is here along with organic baby leeks and a mild variety of Jersey-grown kale. Local chives, radishes and arugula are also in full swing. Availability for West Coast broccoli, cauliflower and aspiration is better, but prices remain high. Improvements on other row crops like broccoli rabe, Iceberg and leaf lettuces are still 2-3 weeks away.
Fruit | The first Mara de Bois strawberries will be available by pre-order next week and Harry’s Berries just keep getting better. Figs are limited right now as we wait for the domestic season to start. Looking a little further out, California growers predict a stellar stone fruit season! We anticipate early cherry varieties to hit the first week of May and Frog Hollow apricots should follow shortly thereafter.
Vegetables | The biggest vegetable news of the week is happening in our backyard: local asparagus, leeks, herbs, greens and radishes are all in full swing! California row crops have started to turn a corner, but prices remain high on broccoli, cauliflower and aspiration. We won’t see relief on broccoli rabe, Iceberg or leaf lettuces for at least two more weeks.
Unique + Foraged | Yellowfoot, Black Trumpet and Hedgehog mushrooms are winding down as the season transitions. Chanterelles will gap for a couple weeks until the European season gets going. For spring mushrooms, Mousseron and St. George varieties should start up within the next ten days. We’re also expecting some new wild greens including wild fennel and elderberry.
