Best in Season Selection

£22.00

  • Introducing the Best in Season Selection, filled with 10 generous portions of our shining seasonal stars - a selection of the finest speciality, heritage and heirloom varieties of fruit and vegetables from our little black book of the UK's best growers, plus some of the best independent growers from across the channel.

    Curated by our in-house chef experts each week, this is not your everyday fruit & vegetable box. It includes the same outstanding products and varieties that Michelin-star chefs are using as seasonal heroes on their menus at this time of year. These are the products that you can't find in the supermarket; whether that's because of the careful attention paid to the crop by our artisan producers, the unusual heirloom varieties you didn't even know existed, or the visually stunning heritage crops grown specially to amaze chefs and home cooks alike.

    To help you along on your journey to discover new flavours and varieties, we always include a weekly produce card in your box. Developed by our in-house Resident Chef Leigh and his expert team, we give you some more information about what we've included in your box and why, as well as some handy tips and tricks to get you started in the kitchen. Plus you'll receive one full recipe each week including one of our hero products.

    Here's an idea of what you can expect this week (w/c 26th October):

      • 1x¬†Sand Carrots, 500g, Sociate Pewe,¬†Normandy
      • 1x Purple Sprouting Broccoli, 250g, Mudwalls, Alcester
      • 1x Round Shallots, 1kg, Sol Pom, France
      • 1x Delicat Pumpkin,¬†Holm Select,¬†Cambridgeshire
      • 1x Green Meat Radish, 350g, Primeur St Malo

      • 4x Bramley Apples,¬† Alan Hudson, Cambridgeshire
      • 4 x Angelini Plums,¬†Italfrutta Di Manno, Italy
    • Grown by David Wheeler at Alan Hudson's fruit farm in Wisbech St Mary, Cambridgeshire, these English Conference pears are harvested by hand, being picked upwards to keep the stalks intact.¬† The soil in Wisbech is particularly good for growing fruit, as the fens, where David‚Äôs trees grow, used to be situated on the coast below sea level, making it nutrient-rich and ideal for farming.
    • Sand carrots are France's best-loved heritage carrot, they have a superb, old fashioned flavour and a vibrant, deep orange colour. This variety has been grown exclusively since the 19th century in eight villages around the Cr√©ances basin, on the west coast of the Contentin peninsula in Normandy. Grown close to the sea in long, narrow fields called milles, the sandy soil has been fertilised with seaweed for generations resulting in the carrots being sweet with a gentle mineral flavour.
