A Fresh new Season of Fruit and Vegetables

Info Paradise - Sunday, October 06, 2013

What a great time of year to eat Fresh.

Spring signals a change in Australian fresh produce availabilities.  A good variety of stone fruit are starting with peaches and nectarines available already, plums, apricots and cherries about to start shortly. Mangoes have just started with a light Northern Territory crop. A dry but warm winter has reduced fruit set so a small crop is the result.  The Queensland crop will be marginally better however it will still be smaller than usual.

 

Australian grapes have started from North Queensland but are not very sweet and are expensive. Most of the grapes you see on shelves at the moment are imported from the USA. 

The citrus crops change in mid spring.  Mandarins are just finishing up in the next month along with navel oranges. The valencia orange season is just starting – they are not as sweet as the Navel oranges but peel much easier and are great for the kids lunch boxes.

The Australian asparagus crop is in full swing and will be plentiful until the end of November.  During December through to mid-August you need to be aware that the asparagus is all imported, usually from Peru, Mexico or Thailand.

All the melon crops are in good supply over the warmer months – watermelon, rock melon and honeydew melons will soon all be plentiful. Just like zucchini, tomatoes and capsicums they are frost tender so growing is limited to those areas without frosts in the winter months.

There is always a good supply of fresh herbs for spring and early summer. They love the warmer conditions to grow in, especially basil which we have found to excel on the Paradise Fresh farm no matter how much heat we cop as long as it has good water availability.  Our hydroponic system is just ideal for growing basil in the summer months, providing plenty of water and perfect nutrition for it.

Most of the salad items such as lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber will be plentiful for the next few months with dry weather conditions predicted - just ideal for the salad weather coming on.
