The first English forced rhubarb is arriving now. Not organic, but most of it grown in Yorkshire. The Seville orange season is in full swing, and the organic fruit has a great colour. The blood oranges are here; still a little sharp but juicy and full flavoured, and they'll improve over the next couple of weeks. The home grown winter squash are nearly finished, but we have some excellent blue skinned ones left; similar to our Crown Prince but smaller and very tasty.
