I recently discovered the Concorde, cousin of the Comice and will buy them when I can’t find Comice. Today is the first time I ever heard of the Starkrimson and am looking forward to finding them. I am fortunate to be in an area that has a Wegmans, which is a top rated supermarket. I am able to buy the best produce.
    We are so lucky to live in a country where we have such an abundance of food.

My Parents always wanted the freshest fruits & vegetables possible Picking & eating as many as you could, they were so sweet & juicy! My Mom would can some & taught me how to can.
