ans of the small and sweet Chantenay carrot have to thank a Nottinghamshire farming cooperative for their revival. It was a challenge to the farmers in Freshgro to produce a carrot that “tasted like they used to” which germinated the initiative to raise the flavoursome variety, virtually unobtainable in the shops for 40 years. Today, just 5 years later, 70% of Chantenay carrots come from just eight farms in a 50-mile radius around Newark in Nottinghamshire. Freshgro produced over 16,000 tonnes of Chantenay in 2005 and more land is being sown with the variety to meet the rapidly growing demand. “We knew we were on to a winner, but the success of the Chantenays exceeded our wildest dreams,” explained Freshgro Sales Manager, Charles Anstey. “Everyone loves them - gourmets, carrot fans, children. They have a beautiful sweet, intense flavour; they look great because they are small, smooth and triangular; and because they don’t need peeling or trimming

they are very convenient.” Their versatility is another key to their popularity. Whether it is popped raw into lunch boxes, lightly steamed as an elegant side dish, roasted, baked, char-grilled or fried, the exquisite little Chantenay always fits the bill. They are often sold in punnets, setting them apart from their common of garden cousins, and they cost a little more. But if carrots are the nation’s favourite vegetable, as it is said, then Chantenay must be a superstar among veg, while

here’s not much George Read doesn’t know about brassicas – this is the name for a group of plants belonging to the mustard family and includes the increasingly popular broccoli, (sometimes known as calabrese), cauliflower, sprouts and kale. He heads up the single biggest brassica growing business in the UK. Each week, up to 159,000 trays of brassicas are sent out from the family-run company, Staples, to supermarkets and stores all over the country. And when you consider that a tray holds in the region of 10 cabbages or heads of broccoli, it adds up to a whole lot of greens. He will be cultivating 7,000 acres in the coming season, but George is careful to ensure

that quantity is never accomplished at the expense of quality. “The flavour of the crop is paramount. That is what keeps customers coming back for more,” he says. Since George’s grandfather began farming on the calcium-rich Lincolnshire fenland soil just outside Boston over 50 years ago, the family have been producing crops of the highest quality. But today’s operation is truly of the 21st century. George took control of brassica production ten years ago and today the company boasts some of the most modern facilities and state of the art equipment in the industry and a full-time workforce of 120. Thanks to expertly practised cultivation and computer management, production continues

ommited vegetarians John and Jean Weston are great fans of LIDL’s fresh produce. Having joined the family business his parents started in 1957, growing lettuce, celery and tomatoes he began raising a few plants to supply his passion for cooking. Finding himself with a bit of a glut on his hands he gave some away and sent a dozen up to Covent Garden with the usual mixed salad crop from his nursery near Chichester in West Sussex. The response was so positive that he started growing a few more. Today he and his wife Tessa are one of an elite few commercial aubergine growers in the UK, and cut half a million aubergines in the nine months of

production from March to November, which averages a rate of 12,000 each week. To compensate for our less than balmy climate, Nicholas grows the crop entirely under glass - an acre of it - at Hollybank Nursery in Almodington. When he grew his first aubergines back in 1990 he faced a constant battle with weeds and he and Tessa suffered lacerated hands from cutting the spiny stems. Today he uses high tech methods, managed by computer, although the
