This week you’ve got a healthy amount of yellow peaches and white nectarines plus what is the last of the Pizzaz plums (finally) and possibly the last of the apricots – there might be just enough left to get a few out on the next regional delivery.
Unfortunately the Queen Giants were affected by leaf curl and insect damage so they don’t quite live up to their name however the flavour is still nice and if all else fails just throw them in a pot (with the Pizzaz!) and stew them up for breakfast or desserts. They are a ‘clingstone’ variety so don’t try to to get the flesh to come off the stone cleanly – it will need to be chopped off with a knife.
What’s in the box?
