Canara Farm – Tomatoes & More…

Today saw the arrival of another Organic Tomato variety from Canara Farm – The Pineapple Beefsteak (Tomato Ananas). This is a large heirloom variety of slightly flattened beefsteak tomatoes with distinctive yellow and orange streaked skins. The flesh of Tomato Ananas is juicy and sweet with a slight citrus after-note and a thick, meaty texture. Each of these delicious fruits can weigh up to 500 gm. We are offering a limited stock of these mixed with  the Black Russian variety that we recently introduced. We also are receiving a small but regular supply of Canara Gold Cherry tomatoes and our Canara Farm Heritage Mixed cherry tomatoes, both of these are available in 500 gm punnets. The Canara Farm mixed French Beans are proving very popular and are readily available at the moment as are the Quartro Cucumbers. We also have just received the first of crop of Cucamelons, these are tiny cucumbers that look like mini watermelons they have a pure cucumber taste with a slight hint of lime. Cucamelons can be eaten whole or pickled. As with everything from Canara Farm we love seeing how our organic crops are being used so please follow us on Twitter and tag us in your pictures.

Canara Farm’s Cucumis Sativus “Crystal Lemon Cucumber”.

Crystal Lemon Cucumbers From Canara Farm Our first crop of Crystal Lemon Cucumbers from Canara Farm arrived yesterday afternoon. The Crystal Lemon Cucumber is also known as the Apple Cucumber, the name comes from their appearance not the taste or aroma. This yellow ridge cucumber is roughly the size of a tennis ball and has a sweet and juicy taste, it is also perfect for pickling. This is the second of our heirloom Cucumber varieties to become available from Canara Farm with the Quartro Cucumber already becoming popular we hope to see this unusual looking cucumber popping up on menus in local kitchens. We are still getting a good crop of runner beans & the mixed colour French beans and are due to receive more tomatoes this weekend.
