In Season: June’s Fruit and Veges

image via Allotment UK

Eating in season means you’re more likely to be eating Australian-grown produce, which is greener and healthier (not as many preservative sprays used/cold storage/synthetic ripening etc). Even better would be to buy locally grown, spray free produce (check your local area for road-side or farm-based stores – they’re more likely to have quality, spray-free produce). And even better would be to buy locally grown, organic produce, but in our case at least, cash is an issue.

I thought it might be helpful to provide a list each month of the fruit and veges that are currently in season (in Australia).

Fruit


apples (bonza, braeburn, fuji, gala, golden delicious, granny smith, jonagold, jonathan, lady williams, mutso, pink lady, red delicious, snow, sundowner)

lemons

mandarin

oranges
pears (beurre bosc, josephine, packham)

Admittedly, I’m really not very good at cooking by season – it’s hard enough figuring out what to cook as it is – but I’m really trying to make the best use of seasonal fruit and veges as possible. I’ve got a delicious, comforting, sweet and yum dessert recipe I’ll post a bit later on, that might help you out when looking for in-season options this winter.

  1. I am not sure where you are getting your info, but good topic.
    I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more.

  2. Hi there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established website such as yours require a
    large amount of work? I’m completely new to blogging however
    I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can share
    my personal experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if
    you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
    Thankyou!

    subscribe for a blog site? The account aided me a acceptable deal.

    offered bright clear idea

  4. To find the pictures you like, you will need to be very specific in your search queries
    on the internet. I have no clue as to why these games are as popular
    as they are, but they are. After a generous monologue by the show host, comedy
    network daily show will have its correspondents provide reports that make good of their promise of satire and exaggeration.

  5. Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to
    understand a lot approximately this, like you wrote the ebook in
    it or something. I think that you could do with a few p.c.
    to power thhe message home a bit, however other than that, that is great blog.
