What's in
the bags

Bag contents for the week beginning 20 August 2018

We have the first apples of the year in the fruit bags this week. Discovery are fresh, crisp and slightly tart, with a beautiful pink-flushed flesh. Like other early apple varieties, they are not good keepers so are best stored in the fridge. 

Please note these are the provisional bag contents and actual contents may vary. Please wash all fruit and veg before eating.
