01 May QUINCES AND POMEGRANATES!
Quinces & Pomegranates – these wonderfully primordial fruits are ready for eating now. Who’s going to make me a quince pie!! We have a slice of the tropics with Rambutan’s, Longans, Custard Apples and some wonderful Passion Fruits in season now.
And I know I said that they were finishing last week but that taste of Aussie Summer doesn’t want to end, with Kensington Pride mangoes still finding there way to the Sydney markets from South Australia and Victoria’s Sunraysia Districts.
Goodbye for another season to my favourite avocado, the Shepard, with its delicious creamy texture and mild taste. Varieties are changing from Shepard to the more commonly favoured HASS variety. The local Valencias are mostly finished, but Anzac weekend generally rings in the new season for both Queensland Navels and Mandarins.
