Mini Heart Cucumbers from Doef's Greenhouses
Nov 19, 2014
We have received a lot of media attention about our Mini Heart Cucumbers.
Doef’s Greenhouses, has come up with a way to make a heart-shaped cucumber – and just in time for Valentine’s Day. Joe Doef explains that a plastic, heart-shaped mould is placed over the cucumber as it begins to grow. When sliced, the interior of the cucumber reveals a tiny, delicious heart shape that will perk up the bagged lunch of your loved ones.
Called Mini Heart cucumbers, the vegetables are exclusively grown at the Doef Greenhouses in Lacombe and are part of a line of produce called the Picky Gardener by Sunfresh Farms, which supplies major grocery stores in western Canada.
