At Coöperatie Hoogstraten, you can find delicious pumpkins in all shapes and colours. They are the ideal taste makers for the autumn and winter months. Pumpkins can be used to make delicious soups and curries, but did you know that pumpkins are also suitable for a whole range of other preparations? For example, raw, roasted, mashed, stewed or even as a filling for bread and cakes. Moreover, pumpkins are full of good qualities.
Pumpkins are best stored in dry, dark places and are available from August to December.
These strawberries are slightly smaller than the standard strawberries and we have 3 varieties in our range.
Pineapple strawberry: a special strawberry with a white to light pink colour and red seeds. Delicious fresh-sweet taste reminiscent of the taste of pineapple.
Raspberry Strawberry: This strawberry has deep-set seeds and a deep red colour, just like a raspberry. Has a surprisingly sweet and juicy taste.
Peach Strawberry: This strawberry has deep seeds and a soft pink colour, just like a peach. It tastes delicately sweet and juicy.
All these special strawberries are a natural cross between two strawberry varieties. They are beautiful as decoration, but also delicious on their own.
Since this year we also have the Summer Whites strawberries. These special strawberries are white and deliciously sweet. They can be found in some shops in a duo packaging together with our delicious red strawberries.
It's small, it's Belgian and it's not a praline. What is it? The Tomélon of course!
Tomeco from Hoogstraten has been producing the purebred Belgian mini-pastèque in three sizes since 2021: fine, medium and coarse. That way the melon fits perfectly in the fridge and you can easily eat it alone or with two, with no leftovers!
Nice detail: the even skin of the Tomélon is thinner. So you can eat it like an apple, skin and all!
Products that we also offer and market through guest auction include courgettes, gherkins, asparagus, cauliflower, radishes and aubergines.
We do this because our main aim is to market healthy and safe food at the best price for our members. To achieve this, we work closely with organisations that, like us, strive for the highest quality. Other cooperatives can offer their products to us (and vice versa), without the need for affiliated growers. This coöperation is clearly bearing fruit. Since 1996, we have been mixing our product range with that of fellow cooperatives.
