What is in season?

Updated: Aug 27, 2019

These days we want everything now.  We want all fruit and vegetables at all times of the year.  This leads to fruit being stored in cold storage for long periods of time. Is this a good thing? The answer is no! No surprises there. When fresh produce is picked, it starts to lose its nutritional value. The way to get the best out of your produce to to buy fruit and vegetables that are in season and/or grow your own.

Fruit in season at the moment: avocado, apple, blackberries, banana, fig, grapefruit, grapes, honeydew, kiwi fruit, lemon, lime, mandarin, orange, papaya, passion fruit, pear, plum, raspberries, rhubarb, rock melon,strawberries.

Vegetables in season:  artichoke, Asian greens, avocado, beans, beetroot, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, capsicum, carrot, cauliflower, celery, corn, cucumber, daikon, eggplant, fennel, leek, lettuce, mushrooms, onion, parsnip, peas, potato, pumpkin, radish, silverbeet, spinach, sweet potato, zucchini.

Tip: Enjoy 2 pieces of fruit a day, and as many vegetables as you can. Minimum 5 different portions a day. This will help you achieve optimal nutrition.
