Producer

The Gimenez brothers grow our mini watermelons in the Almeria region of southern Spain. The warm sunny climate, good soil and lack of frost provide the perfect conditions for the fruit as well as what we call the ratatouille vegetables - peppers, tomatoes, aubergines and courgettes. Jose and his brother Miguel have a great deal of growing experience and are known as aubergine experts within organic circles, so much so, they regularly offer help and advice to other organic growers.

Storage & prep

The skin of a melon is never eaten, however it is strong enough to act as a support to the flesh while you eat it. It is easiest to deal with if you slice half way down the melon, lengthways. Then cut off a wedge and dig in! The flesh can also be cut away from the skin and used in fruit salads. Melon should be kept in a cool place, although until it has been cut open the moisture loss should be minimal. Once you have taken a few slices out of it, keep it in a plastic covering in your fridge.

Organic tastes better
We reckon slow grown food that’s allowed to go at its own pace tastes the best. Don’t just take our word for it.
"The vegetables are all really fresh, keep longer than supermarket and have so much more flavour."
