From top left, clockwise: Eggplant, onions, peppers, Asian pears, summer squash, edamame, parsley, beefsteak tomatoes, chives, sweet corn.

September is here and it already feels like fall is on the way in with cooler temperatures. You’ll find some Asian pears in your box this week, a special treat to be enjoyed this time of year, they are very juicy, have the great taste of a pear, and the crisp texture (and shape!) of an apple. These pears are great for snacking and baking, and will keep for quite a while if you take care with gentle handling to keep the skin intact and unblemished. They are a great source of Vitamin C and fiber – if you need some ideas, try one of these great recipes!
