Spring in Australia – Seasonal Fruit & Vegetables

As the days lengthen and the soil warms in our corner of the southern hemisphere, nature celebrates the new season with bushels and bunches of the good stuff, like lush red strawberries, beetroot, blood oranges, watermelon and honeydew melons. Also let’s not forget the vivid ripe green artichokes, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, fennel, leeks, peas, broad beans, spinach and spring onion.

This fresh and young produce is bursting with vitamins, moisture and most importantly Flavour, which is just another example of how eating locally grown produce rather than relying on off-season fruit and vegies is such an advantage to us living in Australia. Although we are still fortunate enough to get practically any fruit and vegetables any month of the year, all the best chefs will be adjusting their menus to showcase the very best of what Australia has to offer and so should you all.

So what’s hot, well for veg, it is hard to go past the Queen of Spring, Asparagus. And for Fruit, Strawberries are King.
