A Better Choice For Freshness

Our pick of the week this week is Figs. Figs are a beautiful fruit with a delicate texture and flavour. To select ripe figs, look for sweet-smelling fruit that gives a little when pressed and is generally soft. Indulge in Figs in everyday life this week with these Fig & Banana Overnight Oats which are super easy to make and are the perfect way to brighten up your morning. 

Grapes continue to have a range of variety at your local fruit and veg shop this week and are a delicious and refreshing option for an afternoon snack. Take your pick from varieties such as menindee, flame seedless, globe, sapphire and muscat grapes this week. 

Rich with antioxidants and mood-boosting vitamins including vitamins A, C and K, Plums are a great option this week. Several varieties are now available, including yellow and red-fleshed varieties, smaller sugar plums and superfood Queen Garnet plums. Take your pick at your local fruit and veg shop this week! Why not whip up this Red Grape & Plum Smoothie with these wonderful seasonal favourites!

Keep your eye out for new-season Gala Apples this week. Juicy, crisp and crunchy, now’s the best time to shop for your Gala Apples and they will be their best quality.

Also look for new-season Williams Pears this week for an added crunch and flavour to snack on or add to your favourite salads. 

Adding to the new-season varieties this week is Custard Apples. This unique fruit is a tropical fruit with a deliciously sweet and creamy flavour, not unlike its namesake! To prepare Custard Apple, simply Cut in half and scoop out the flesh, taking care to remove the seeds as you go.
