This Weeks Box 3/17/2012

Here is what is in the box
bag of braising greens “mostly chard and spinach”
zutano avocados
green onions
red potatoes
brussels sprouts
blood oranges
small head red lettuce
beets with big nice greens
This weeks avocado is a Zutano Avocado. It has a lime green skin, fairly skinny neck and yellow bumps. It is a Mexican variety that is grown commercially here in California.
It’s flavor is similar to Hass but not quite as creamy. It is also more fibrous than most other California Avocados.
Next week we will showcase Bacon Avocados. The following week, we will load you up with Fuerte’s. And after that, Hass. See if you cannot notice some of the subtle differences in the different avocados. You might get to where you are able to identify every avocado you get from us.
