What is a Punnet?

A punnet is a small light basket or other container for fruit or vegetables. The weight varies from country to country.

Originally, they were a round woodchip basket but nowadays, they are square to rectangular and made of plastic. They can also be made of more sustainable materials like moulded pulp or corrugated cardboard.

        1. Oh boy I can’t wait for spring. We shovelled lots of snow last night. It’s now -16C and such a relief. We had a really cold spell before that. Enjoy the nice weather!
