The D'Agen sugar plum is a petite, high sugar variety named for a town in the southwest of France, a region known for its high quality fruit. When ripe, D'Agen plums are deep purple on the outside and rich amber yellow on the inside; the fruit has a meaty texture and distinctly sweet flavor. The D'Agen is prized for its culinary range as it can be used as a key ingredient in both sweet and savory dishes. This fleeting delicacy is available for only a short time during the month of March.
Imported from South Korea, these are the freshest, juiciest, best tasting pears you'll find. While still on the trees, they are hand-wrapped with a protective paper cover to protect them from the elements, resulting in a perfect, blemish-free fruit. Because of this, the fruit retains more juice, thus producing a smaller core and more juicy flesh! All of this care means the best way to eat one of these Korean treasures is straight out of hand, enjoying the rich satisfying flavor only a true Butterscotch Pear can deliver.
The earthy-tasting Swiss chard is a powerhouse of nutrition. And with its rainbow assortment of stem colors, it's as pleasing on the plate as it is to the palate. Rainbow chard is a mix of white-stemmed Swiss chard, red chard, and golden chard. When those three power players come together, they pack in a lot of flavor. As a result, rainbow chard has the intense mineral edge of Swiss chard, the earthy sweetness of red chard, and the wonderfully mild nutty flavor of golden chard.
Savory Cabbage is also known as curly cabbage. With ruffled, lacy, deeply ridged leaves, savoy cabbages are perhaps the prettiest around. The leaves are more loosely layered and less tightly packed than green or red cabbage. It's a bit more tender than other cabbages and is delicious when braised in butter.
