Valencian Citrus

Courgettes and lettuce might have been suffering but the more traditional seasonal harvest of Valencian citrus is coming through thick and fast. Mr Veg (Steve) in the shop found a new supplier/farmer in Valencia and we’ve been getting some wonderful, traditional variety, ‘straight from the tree’, lemons, clementines, oranges and grapefruit straight from the farm so it really is grove-fresh. It’s literally, picked to order and sent, ungraded, straight to us. The lemons come in all shapes and sizes but they’re unimaginably zesty compared with their long-life, cold stored counterparts and I wish the clementine (du Nules) had been around at Christmas.
