Old-fashioned varieties, bursting with flavor
 
Considered gems among growers, heirloom tomato seeds are passed down from one generation to the next. They grow from the soil by open pollination. Insects, birds, rain, wind and other natural mechanisms all play a role. Available in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes, each has its own unique tang, texture and acidity. Taste for yourself!
 
Choose Brandywine, Black Russian, Purple Cherokee, Green Zebra and more. 
 
 
The story of Walla Walla Sweet Onions began over a century ago on an island off the west coast of Italy, where Peter Pieri, a French soldier, found a sweet onion seed and later brought it to Washington's Walla Walla Valley.  
 
Developed by farmers over generations by carefully hand-selecting the best of each year's crop, these Northwest-grown onions are exceptionally sweet, large and round. Today's growers are not just raising sweet onions, they're cultivating a tradition. 
 
Best eaten raw or slightly cooked, they're perfect in our recipe for Oregon Firecracker Burgers. Or add them to pizza, quiche or pasta. They also make amazing onion rings!
 
 
Choose from Casaba, Canary, Crenshaw, Hami, Galia, Piel de Sapo or Orange Flesh Honeydew.
 
Here are five ways to enjoy them!
1. Wrap slices with prosciutto for an amazing appetizer.
2. Puree with sautéed jalapeño, honey and white pepper then chill for cold soup.
3. Create colorful kabobs and serve with honey yogurt dip.
4. Mix balled or cubed varieties with maple syrup or agave and shaved ginger.
5. Puree with sugar and lime juice, pour into molds and freeze for popsicles.
 
Succulent fruits that beckon warm, sunny days
 
Golden-colored peaches and nectarines please more than the palate, they also help your heart by providing nearly 25% of the daily recommended intake of potassium, a mineral important for maintaining healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
 
Enjoy whole as a snack, or halve and grill with balsamic vinegar, then sprinkle with crumbled blue cheese for sweet and savory snack or dessert!
