Here are some rules to follow to avoid wasting away your beautiful, freshly picked vegetables:

  • All leafy vegetables and greens should be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container (plastic bag, ziplock, container with lid, or the like) to prevent wilting. A paper towel can also be inserted to absorb excess moisture.
  • We often offer you root vegetables in bunches with the foliage. It is preferable to cut the foliage of its roots before putting everything in the fridge. Otherwise, the roots will use all of its energy to keep the foliage alive and the root may wilt.
  • Once you have cut and stored the foliage, the roots themselves (carrots, beets, radishes, etc.) are also best stored in an airtight container (plastic bag or any closed container). This will keep them crunchier.
  • All the foliage cut from the roots is also edible. For example, it is possible to use beet leaves in salads or in sautéed vegetables. Even carrot leaves are super nutritious and can be eaten much like parsley. Add it to homemade broths, pestos, finely sliced ​​in salads or in your smoothies or green juices!
  • Several other vegetables can be stored in a container to prevent them from wilting in the refrigerator: beans, zucchini, cucumber, cabbage, broccoli … However, avoid excessively airtight containers that create condensation, as excess humidity will promote also their withering away.
  • Some vegetables must even be kept at room temperature. For example, tomatoes and cherry tomatoes will lose flavor and suffer from cold marks in the fridge … but still be mindful, since if it is very hot, their ripening may accelerate. An air-conditioned room is optimal. The same goes for peppers and eggplants.
  • Dry onions, storage garlic and squash that we will bring you this fall can also be stored much longer outside the fridge, which is way too humid.
  • Our beautiful apples shouldn’t be left on the counter for several days if you want them to stay crunchy! Leave them in the fridge and take them out only a few hours before eating them if you prefer to eat them warmer

First delivery – Organic Baskets 2020

Around mid-May, everybody seems to feel a spring fever and wants to eat a basket of freshness! You are then more and more to write to us to question on the expected date of the first basket 😉


For the current season 2020, our current objective is to deliver the first baskets on the following dates:

  • Métro Drouin Vieux-Longueuil: Thursday June 18th
  • Marché public de Longueuil: Saturday June 20th & Sunday June 21st


Each spring, however, presents its share of unknowns in terms of weather cocktail and this greatly influences our ability to reach our goal. This spring had the particularity of offering us late frosts, which delayed many plantings in the fields. The sun and the heat are now there, but we will wait in June before confirming if all this will allow us to make up for lost time … or not! There is therefore a certain probability that the date of the first basket of a delivery point, or both, would be delayed by one week:

  • Métro Drouin Vieux-Longueuil: Thursday June 25th
  • Marché public de Longueuil: Saturday June 27th & Sunday June 28th


In addition, for subscribers who have signed up to receive a basket every 2 weeks, you will be separated into 2 groups. Group A will receive its first basket on first delivery and Group B on second delivery. Depending on the group to which you will be assigned by our automated system, the date of your first delivery could thus vary by one week. If you have a certain delivery sequence that would better suit your planned activities, please write to us at info@terrefruitiere.ca.


So watch your emails between June 8th and 10th. We will then send the confirmation on the official start of the season and a link to your personalized online calendar. The online calendar will allow you to:

  • Confirm the date of YOUR first delivery, taking into account the specifics of your subscription;
  • Choose a timeslot to pickup your parcel (In order to facilitate social distancing and COVID-19 prevention);
  • Modify the date of certain deliveries to manage your absences and holidays;
  • Exchange a basket for an equivalent credit, to be spent at any time throughout the season on complementary products or at our kiosk at Marché public de Longueuil.
