  ZUCCHINI

Add colour and flavour to salads, stir frys and even bread with green and yellow zucchini. Both varieties are planted in mid-May and are ready for harvest by the end of June. Since zucchini grows very quickly, sometimes it is necessary to pick daily from the same plant. Its skin boasts a very soft membrane that can be damaged easily. Picking and packing are extremely important. Zucchini can be found at supermarkets, fruit stands and the Ontario Food Terminal. For more vibrant, savory meals, add a fresh Ontario zucchini.

There are many different varieties of romas available. Here at Procyk Farms, we produce two different types: a saladette and a canning roma tomato. Like their names indicate, a saladette is great for tossed salads and tends to be longer in length, while a canning roma is great for preservatives and is shorter and blockier in appearance. Both are planted and cultivated in May. Saladettes are harvested in late July, while cannings are harvested in mid August. Romas are hand-picked and packed using electronic size and colour sorting.

  peppers GREEN BELL PEPPERS

Sink your teeth into our signature crop: green bell peppers. We're known for our quality and size of green bells. We use computerized weighing equipment to ensure uniform packaging and we are continuously experimenting with varieties to ensure quality, especially since weather is a crucial element in the production of peppers. Check your local supermarket for green bells from August 10 to October 10.

     
  peppers RED, YELLOW, ORANGE BELL PEPPERS

There are many uses and recipes available for these sweet peppers. Red bells are great for stuffing, cooking on the BBQ or just as a snack. When the growing starts, they are green bells, but once the plant matures, the peppers change to red. Like our other bells, they are hand-picked and packed using weight sizing graders. Buy red bell peppers from late August to early October.

     
  peppers RED SHEPHERD PEPPERS

If you want to enjoy peppers all winter long, then the red shepherd pepper is a great choice: they work well for preserving. Like our regular red bells, our shepherds grow from green to red and are available from August 25 to October 10. We use our expertise and advanced cultivation practices to produce the best crop of peppers. So, the next time you're in the grocery store, put fresh, red shepherd peppers in your basket.

WINTER STORAGE CABBAGE
Great for sauerkraut, coleslaw and even cabbage rolls, winter storage cabbage will be a welcome complement to any meal. The head is much tighter and denser in comparison to the summer cabbage, because the growing process takes longer. It's kept in cold storage and because we have enhanced storage facilities, good quality is maintained throughout the winter months. Available from November to April of the next year.
