I’m reading about a fresh veggie shortage in Europe. Nothing new there, I thought, because all perishable products go through ebbs and flows of supply. US, Mexican, and South American growers would like to fill the void, but air cargo is too expensive. I learned that what we call zuchinni, is called corgette in Europe.
The article said that Spain provides a lot of fresh veggies this time of year. There was no mention of Israel, which at least used to provide a lot of them. I remember talking to grad students at UMass, who were or wanted to be involved in the Middle East veggie biz.
