Originally there were only Goldie™ melons,
but in the last five years, an ever-increasing
winter vegetable program has been added.
Goldie™ melons include:
Cantaloupe, Green and Orange Honeydew, Galia and Hami,
Seedless Full Size and Mini, Red and Yellow Watermelon.
Goldie™ vegetables include:
Broccoli, Sweet Baby Broccoli, Green, Red and Savoy Cabbage,
Cauliflower, Celery, Bunched Grilling Onions, and Romaine Hearts.
An excellent alternative to broccoli, organic cauliflower has taste that is unparalleled. So good that you might not even need dip to enjoy it! </br> </br> Often steamed or boiled, try sauteeing cauliflower for a change. Adding cauliflower to a skillet helps retain the vegetables crispness, and holds in the flavour. Cauliflower is high in both fiber and vitamin C, with a half cup of florets providing nearly half of ones daily requirement for vitamin C. It also contains a fair amount of vitamin A, folate, calcium and potassium as well as selenium, which works with Vitamin C to boost the immune system.
Fresh local cabbage. Green and crisp. Definitely delicious. </br></br>Cabbage, particularly short cooked or raw cabbage, contains sinigrin. Sinigrin has been shown to have unique cancer preventative properties, specifically for bladder, prostate, and colon cancer. A great source of vitamins K, C, and A.
Crunchy. Red. So good. Adds wonderful colour and texture to many dishes. Essential in homemade coleslaw! </br></br> Fat-free and cholesterol-free, red cabbage is rich in vitamin C, plus offers carbohydrates, calcium, iron, protein, thiamin, riboflavin, potassium and fibre. One cup of shredded cabbage contains about 25 calories.
Savoy cabbage is also known as curly cabbage. With ruffled, lacy, deeply ridged leaves, Savoy cabbages are perhaps the prettiest cabbages around. The leaves are more loosely layered and less tightly packed than green or red cabbage, although its uses are similar. It is delicious thinly sliced in salads, quickly stir-fried, or braised in butter.</br></br>Savoy cabbage is a bit more tender than other cabbages and works nicely as a fresh and crunchy wrap; try using it in place of rice paper or tortillas with your favorite fillings.. </br></br>Savoy cabbage is a variety of the plant species Brassica oleracea. Savoy cabbage is a winter vegetable. Cabbage provides fiber, vitamins A, C, K and B6, folate, potassium, manganese, thiamin, calcium, iron and magnesium.
