Weekend Produce Updates - 02/13/15

Here we go... 

Pixie Tangerines. They're new (to us), they're small, they're seedless and they're very good. 

Cara Cara are back and we love them as well. 
Wikipedia has some nice things to say about them: 
 This medium sized navel is sweet and low in acid. The flavor is more complex than most navel varieties and has been described as evoking notes of cherry, rose petal, orange, and blackberry. 

My plebian palate is dull and sadly I couldn't detect the notes of rose petal. Not so dull though that I don't know a good cantaloupe when I taste one- or when Janet tells me it's good. 
It's actually called the MAG Cantaloupe, short for Magnificent. The name itself has notes of presumptuousness. Luckily, it lives up to it's name and is quite good. From Costa Rica. 
We also have some Guatemalan Golden Honeydews. They're also very good. 

The price for organic asparagus has fallen as the season progresses in Mexico and we're now carrying it alongside the non-organic asparagus. 

Watercress. We've stopped carrying the pesticide free watercress because it is no longer pesticide free. We're now carrying an organic watercress. It comes in bags and is kept near the salads.
