As November rolls in, Spring is almost over already! Rains around the country have been causing issues for growers in the southern states, and may impact what’s available in the coming weeks and months, but nevertheless, fresh produce will still be available at your local fruit and veg shop with produce from non-impacted crops and fresh seasonal produce from around the country.
This week’s pick of the week is juicy and sweet Mangoes! Mangoes are the flavour of summer, and are in excellent supply at your local fruit and veg shop. Mangoes are best enjoyed fresh as a refreshing snack, or sliced and added to a salad like our Chicken Mango & Avocado Salad. No matter how you enjoy them, the whole family will appreciate having some fresh Mangoes this week!
Aussie stone fruit season is beginning, and with it brings a variety of new produce lines! Expect to see Apricots, Peaches and Nectarines this week!
Melones are a delicious snack for the warmer weather! Choose from Honeydew, Watermelon and Rockmelon this week! We are loving our Melon & Bocconcini Salad, which calls for Rockmelon but can be substituted with your favourite variety of melon!
Berry crops are beginning to move southward through the country, but are still of good quality. Choose your favourite from a selection of Blueberries, Strawberries and Raspberries this week.
In vegetables this week, there is a great supply of Cucumber, a delicious crunchy addition to salads and sandwiches. Enjoy the taste of summer all year round with our Cucumber, Watermelon & Basil Cooler!
Asparagus remains a great pick this week! Asparagus adds crunch to your meals and is a great option for a tasty side-dish! Asparagus can be eaten raw, and adds a slight pea-flavoured taste to salads, or can be sauteed with garlic and seasoning for a simple yet delicious side-dish.
Snow Peas and Sugar Snap Peas are wonderful in spring, and are available at your local fruit and veg shop this week. Pick some up for a slightly sweet addition to your vegetable offerings for dinner this week.
Broccoli and Baby Broccoli are loaded with nutrients and are a plentiful now. Change up the way you prepare your broccoli this week and try this hearty dish of Marinated Lentils with Baby Broccoli and Feta for a meal that will have you coming back for seconds!
