Fresh food club - What's in season?

"ideas on the freshest produce this season coupled with gourmet recipes for the freshest produce in town

What's fresh?


A bumper crop of North coast blueberries means we see plump, flavoursome and nutritious blueberries at great prices.


Freshly harvested mangoes are currently coming from Darwin and Katherine. Choose from; tangy Kensington Pride, the larger sized R2E2 and now the sweet calypsos


Aromatic and sweet eating rockmelons from Bowen and Western Australia are now available

Why not try...


Sweet eating and juicy red-fleshed grapefruit are a good buy. Use red grapefruit segments in a salsa; their salmon-red coloured flesh and tangy flavour are perfect teamed with avocado, green onions and chopped coriander.


Plump, fragrant strawberries from Victoria, Western Australia, and Queensland are well priced.


Queensland pineapples are delicious this week.


Harvesting of new season North Coast peaches and nectarines is underway, and small volumes of early varieties are arriving in-store at your local greengrocer. Early season fruit should yield to gentle pressure and have a sweet aroma before eating. As we move closer to summer, nectarines and peaches supplies increase and the fruit gets larger and richer in flavour


Creamy Hass avocados are a top buy

Grape Tomatoes

They may be small, but they pack a punch of flavour; Cherry and grape tomatoes are the best buy for taste and value


Tropical tasting papaya from the Mossman area of far north Queensland are in good supply. A fragrant aroma is a good indication of flavour.

Cos Lettuce

Super crisp Cos lettuce is the classic lettuce of choice for a Caesar salad.


Aussie asparagus is a top buy. Enjoy it in Asian or Mediterranean-style salads or simply stir-fried, steamed or barbecued.

Asian Greens

Stir-fries are brimming with fresh produce and make an ideal meal for busy people. Toss a medley of Asian leafy greens such as bok choy and choy sum with marinated beef or chicken


With its delicious aniseed flavour and crisp texture, the fennel adds vibrancy to spring salads. It has virtually no fat and few kilojoules and refreshing raw or cooked.


Ultra versatile zucchini is a thrifty buy. For something different, slice and marinate in soy sauce, and grill at your next barbecue. Zucchinis can also be added to a stir fry, grated and baked in a cake or added to a frittata.


Eggplant is a versatile Mediterranean vegetable that is easy to prepare. No need for salt; simply slice, brush with olive oil and grill until tender. Add cooked eggplant slices to pizza topping, sandwiches and antipasto or try this eggplant and roast capsicum salad.


Vitamin D is essential for strong bones, muscles and overall health. Mushrooms are a source of vitamin D.


Leafy silverbeet and English spinach are super good buys this week
