What's in season? - April

Produce Update

Kanzi apples

First introduced to Australia over 12 years ago, bright red Kanzi Apples are a cross between a juicy Royal Gala and crunchy Braeburn. After the hardships of the 2020 season, which saw growers battle through bushfires and drought, apple growers forecast a record crop of Kanzi apples this season that will extend the season until spring.

We have also just received the first lot of new season Pink Lady Apples, grown locally in Harcourt!

Persimmons

Soft and sweet eating Persimmons are a seasonal fruit available from April to July. Persimmons are ready to eat when the flesh is soft, gooey and resembling apricot jam. Persimmons team well with yoghurt, custard, sponge, honey, cinnamon.

Tomatoes

There is an abundance of Tomatoes due to the heavy rainfall in growing regions such as Stanthorpe and south of Bundaberg, which means favourable prices for consumers. For those seeking the trusty ‘Truss’ tomato, it is still in good supply coming from South Australia. Did you know that tomatoes are a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K?

Mandarins

The first Mandarins of the year are the Imperial variety from Central Queensland around the Gayndah district. There is fruit in April, but the best fruit is early to mid May. Imperials are a medium sized mandarin, easy to peel, and don’t have a lot of seeds. Hence they are extremely popular in the school lunch box.

Citrus fruit

Citrus fruits from Gayndah are hitting the Market in a big way and are a great addition to our diet in the lead up to winter. Lemons, limes, and new season Navel oranges are available and in good supply.
