Reinaldo’s farm is located just north of Lisbon, Portugal, where he has 35 hectares of a wide variety of organic vegetables.
Reinaldo began harvesting tomatoes for tomato sauce at the age of 19, but he was always interested in organic farming and waited to see retail shops showing an interest in organic produce, before he invested in his own organic farm. In 1998, he saw the market grow, and therefore worked hard to get his organic certification. Now he grows everything from garlic, to tomatoes, potatoes and herbs. Watch this space for more of Reinaldo’s products coming soon!
This tasty, freshly harvested 5kg box of organic aubergines is perfect for the family or friends who love being creative with their cooking!
Storage and shelf life
Since our organic aubergines are harvested fresh, when stored in a cool dry place with good ventilation, they can last up to 1-2 weeks. We suggest cooking or freezing your aubergine to keep them even longer, or share a box with a friend.
Aubergines are very versatile vegetables! Try them grilled on the BBQ, spiced in soups and curries, charred aubergine in a dip (such as the well-known Lebanese babaganoush), aubergine rolls stuffed with minced lamb, or as aubergine ’steaks’ – a great meatless alternative in burgers!
Order before Thursday 12.00 to be guaranteed to receive Saturday’s fresh harvest on the following Tuesday or Wednesday. Deliveries are once weekly.
