All kinds of unique heirloom varietals are making their way into the produce aisle to remind us that summer is in full swing! Cool off with a sweet and juicy LEMON CUCUMBER – looks like a lemon, tastes like a cucumber – or grill up some WHITE EGGPLANTS – totally white, with the most hearty flavor. ZEBRA heirloom tomatoes add stripy color to any salad or sandwich, and EIGHTBALL SQUASH bring all the inspiration of a zucchini in the form of a perfect sphere. All are grown on small organic farms in Lancaster County, PA, and by purchasing these heirloom products you are promoting the protection of seed, pollinator, and ecosystem biodiversity! Yum.
