Produce Spotlight – Joy

This month is our produce sale, and to continue the celebration of all things produce, we want to spotlight our produce employees and their tastes.

joy citrus sampler

This holiday season, Joy gave her friends “citrus samplers” that she created – a pomello, a cara cara, a kumquat – along with a description of each so they knew what they were tasting. With so many different citrus fruits available, it can be difficult to detect the subtle differences in flavor, and many people have never tried some of the slightly more obscure varieties.

In past years she’s decorated the little enclosure with pictures she drew with colored pencils to accent the descriptions. Consider this unique gift idea next time you’re coming up with a present for a friend, or just bring a “citrus sampler” home for yourself to experience the variety of flavors. Thanks for the great idea Joy!
