Box Contents

2 lbs. Globe Eggplant

1 lbs. Mixed Sweet Peppers

1 lbs. Mixed Heirloom tomatoes

2 Delicata Squash

1 Napa Cabbage

1 Yellow Canary Melon

 

Box Notes: The Yellow Canary Melon is a very sweet, white flesh melon that remains firm when ripe. It has a floral, perfumy flavor with nuances of banana/pineapple and is loaded with juice. This will likely be the last week for melons in the CSA boxes, though a late cantaloupe is a possibility.
