Posted by Boston Organics on Sep 10, 2022 12:19:00 PM

Hanging onto summer: Organic corn

Sweet, tender organic corn-on-cob says end-of-summer like almost nothing else. While exquisite, corn is very susceptible to pests, particularly silkworms. Unlike conventional growers, organic corn growers can't spray their fields with chemical pesticides, which is a big invitation for the little buggers to eat away.

Stone fruit has an element of nostalgia, bringing to mind memories of sweet, sticky hands on a hot summer day—picking through pint containers of little yellow-orange fruit at the farmers’ market and popping open vats of aromatic preserves put by for colder times.

Why Organic Wild Blueberries Are Actually Worth The Hype

Posted by Boston Organics on Aug 3, 2022 11:45:00 AM

If you’re a native New Englander or longtime Boston resident, then August is probably one of your favorite months for fresh, organic fruit. Not only are juicy heirloom tomatoes ready for harvest and stone fruit at its peak, it’s also the heart of the short but spectacular wild blueberry season.

The Boston Organics Community includes some pretty talented farmers, but there are some things that nature simply does better than any human can. One such thing is growing blueberries.

We’ve had organic blueberries available as an add-on for several weeks, but wild blueberries—the kind that you dreamt about as a kid—are in another league entirely.

Are Pluots GMOs? And Other Questions About Hybrid Stone Fruit

Posted by Boston Organics on Jul 6, 2022 11:30:00 AM

What would the perfect fruit look like? It would probably be sweet and juicy. It might have a bright, edible skin so you don’t have to worry about messy peels and rinds. While you’re at it, you’d want to make it easy to grow and sturdy enough to take with you without getting smooshed like a brown banana at the bottom of lunch bag. Do you have an image in your head yet? Does it look something like this:

This is a pluot, a beautifully constructed hybrid-cross between a plum and an apricot. Some people consider pluots to be the perfect fruit, but it’s also very much still a work in progress. Though the first successfully controlled cross between a plum and an apricot occurred more than a century ago, most people are unfamiliar with pluots. And those who are fortunate enough to have tasted these juicy fruits are often filled with questions about the mysterious hybrid.

Fortunately, Boston Organics is here to take you “beneath the peel,” giving you a better understanding of the mysteries behind the organic pluot.
