Sliced Lemons layered on top of one another

A Better Choice For Freshness

Considering the sustainability of your weekly fruit and veg purchases is on everyone’s mind, and with our quick little guide on what’s in season, you can be sure you’re making a positive impact on the environment by supporting local families and businesses. Choosing seasonal produce means you are not only getting the very best quality, but you can be sure it’s grown right here in Australia and travelled a shorter distance to get to you. It can be bittersweet seeing your favourite seasonal fruit or veg end its season, but it is always exciting to see what’s new in season at your local Fruit and Veg Shop! 

Lemons are the star in our fruit bowls this week, and we couldn’t be happier for this tangy fruit. Lemons are an essential ingredient in most cooking, and just a squeeze of the juice can add so much flavour to a dish that is lacking acidity. Not to mention, lemons are the perfect dessert hero, whether you’re making a classic like Lemon tart, or something a bit different like our Lemon Tiramisu, there are so many reasons to put Lemons in your shopping basket this week! 

Persimmons are a perfect Autumn treat with a delicate flavour that’s not too sweet and a delicious, almost jelly-like consistency. They’re rich in vitamin C, so they’re perfect for fighting off a cold! They won’t be around for long, so be sure to pick some up from your local Fruit and Veg shop while they’re in season! 

Another one of our favourite Autumn fruits is the deliciously bright Pomegranate, with a sharp, sweet flavour which is the perfect addition to salads with dinner, or makes a perfect snack! 

Autumn is the time for delicious new season Apples and Pears. You will find a wide variety available at your local Fruit and Veg shop of excellent quality and at a good price. Whether you’re after a tasty snack, or in the mood for baking, be sure to pick some up this week!
