Final Four: (1) Strawberry vs. (5) Grapes

We have our Final Four!  Strawberry vs. Grape and Tomato vs. Banana!

Grape has been more than a Cinderella story in this year’s March Produce Madness. It’s defeated broccoli, apple and pumpkin. But now it’s facing strawberry. This spring berry has had no trouble against any fruit or veggie. Who will you vote for? Who should be the champ?

*The poll will be open until Monday, April 4 at 8:00 AM CST.

Get Ready for the Elite 8!

As expected, the delicious, citrus-y clementine proved victorious over brussels sprouts – 59% to 41%

Take a small breather! We’re taking a tiny break from March Madness right before the Elite 8 begins! The match-up between spring will take place on Monday, March 28, and the other seasonal match-ups will take place every day after that. Then spring will go up against fall, and summer will face off against winter on April 1. You’ll have the whole weekend to vote on the produce item you want to be in the championship. The two final items will battle on April 4, and a winner will be chosen on April 7!

Are you ready for the craziness of March Produce Madness?
