Seasonal Fruits & Vegetables
Everybody who stands close to nature and believes in the power of every season, can´t avoid it; there are five unique seasons, with fruits, vegetables and herbs which are authentic for that time of year.
For our seasonal fruits and vegetables, we work togehter with Rungis.
Rungis has 5 seasons with potatoes, fruits and vegetables: winter, spring, early summer, summer and autumn. Fruits and vegetables, harvested in their own season, are tastier, cheaper and ‘greener’. If it also comes from the area where they originally came from, where their roots are, the taste is optimal. Sounds easy, and actually it is.

The 5 Seasons
The way winter tastes:
Beets, cabbage, sprouts; don’t say the winter is a less wealthy season. And what about all the citrus, which is now at its best.
The way spring tastes
A new spring… new flavors. Celebrate spring with creamy white asparagus, flowers on the plate and lettuce with the dew still on it.
The way early summer tastes
It’s time for flowers. In fact, they are allowed on the plate. Along with all those wonderful fresh lettuces the early summer brings you.
The way summer tastes
The summer with its abundance: plenty of choice, plenty of flavors and most of all, plenty of color. Juicy ripe tomatoes, sweet peppers and delicious soft eggplants.
The way autumn tastes
Less color, but definitely no less flavor. The roots are big and thanks to the lower temperature, pleasantly sweet.

Sustainably grown and with lots of love .
The passionate fruit grower Ben de Sonaville grows the very tasty Rembrandt apples in the land of Maas and Waal .
The Sonaville family has been growing fruits for generations. Father, Piet de Sonaville, planted the mother tree of the Rembrandt apples around 1990. The current generation still reaps the benefits of this tree. The Rembrandt apple is a cross between the aromatic Cox ’ s, the sweet El star and the colorful star apple.
This results in a delicious aromatic, juicy apple with a good firm bite . This amazing apple is also excellent for processing , hardly discolors and also retains its firmness when processed.
This apple has a beautiful red - yellow colored contrast that is reminiscent of Bellefleur. We entirely understand that this colorful apple is called after the Dutch master painter : Rembrandt
The Karmozijn pear looks like a big hand pear.
But when you cut of the skin or cut them in half, the beautiful pink marbled flesh appears.
The Karmozijn is an extraordinary cooking pear . This cooking pear can be eaten raw , when perfectly ripe . When eaten raw they are slightly acidic, but incredibly beautiful when sliced thin in for example a salad.
The Karmozijn can be cooked in 10 - 15 minutes and has a beautiful soft , sweet taste. During the cooking the pink marbled flesh will turn completely dark pink . Amazing to use as poached pears , or to make into pear sauce or jam .
