The pandemic has taken quite a toll on a lot of us. Small businesses are struggling to stay afloat, and many people risk losing or have already lost their jobs. Beyond the corporate scene, our local farmers have also been affected. Not only are they left with an oversupply of fruits and vegetables with no means to get them across, but they also aren’t earning enough to survive.
This is why Plants vs. COVID was established. The objective is to bridge the gap between farmers and the very people who are looking for fresh produce by offering a weekly vegetable bundle subscription service.
Plants vs. COVID guarantees the quality of their fresh produce. Anything that doesn’t make the cut isn’t sent out. What sets them apart from other local vendors and suppliers is that they offer fruit and vegetable bundles – and at a weekly subscription at that!
Plants vs. COVID Bundles
Plants vs. COVID offers a goodie bag filled with different fruits and vegetables, and they’ve got tons of combinations for you to choose from.
Mixed Veggies and Fruit Bundle (Php980)
That’s 9 kilos of fresh produce sourced from Benguet. Their selection includes watermelon, broccoli, green cabbage, young corn, Baguio beans, carrots, sayote, pumpkin, cherry tomatoes, Iceberg lettuce, marble potatoes, and regular potatoes.
Cool Fruits Bundle (Php680)
This sweet bundle includes three kinds of fruit to keep you cool. It includes 1 hand of banana saba, 5 pieces of mangoes, and a whole watermelon.
Weekly Subscription Bundle (Php3,800)
For those who are too busy to ponder on what to get, this package is a great deal. It includes 4 bundles of fruits and veggies, which will be delivered 4 times. The selection varies depending on availability and quality, but you can end up with Baguio beans, carrots, chayote, broccoli, young corn, potatoes, marble potatoes, cauliflower, romaine lettuce, Baguio petchay, eggplant, okra, iceberg lettuce, cabbage, garlic, white onion, red onion, leeks, watermelon, pineapple, banana, and mango. You’ll even get a mystery item!
My Mixed Veggies and Fruit Bundle
I was able to secure a Mixed Veggies and Fruits Bundle from Plants vs. COVID myself and I was really happy with what I got. Check it out:
The full spread. While the bundle normally comes with watermelon, mine was replaced with banana saba because the quality of their watermelon that day wasn’t up to their standards. I had actually been craving for turon, so this really came in handy.
Cherry tomatoes and marbled potatoes as sides for my family’s lunch and dinner.
Check out these Baguio beans and baby corn. So fresh!
