Produce Update

Apple pie

You can’t go past a classic apple pie for a warm winter dessert; crisp and freshly harvested apples are bountiful right now, and Australia has over 10 popular varieties available, try all the different varieties to discover their distinct tastes, textures and appearances including royal gala, red delicious, fuji and granny smith to name a few.

Kiwi fruit

Kiwifruits are in peak season and you can now select from three colours; green, gold and red flesh varieties. One kiwifruit supplies more than twice the recommended daily intake of vitamin C. The red kiwis vibrant flesh has a deliciously sweet berry-tinged flavour.

Bok choy, choy sum and Chinese broccoli

Bok choy, Choy sum and Chinese Broccoli flourish in Autumn and have recovered well after the recent Sydney floods. Super nutritious and fast to cook, Asian leafy greens are a good source of vitamin C, vitamin A, folate and antioxidants and low in kilojoules! So pick up a few bunches to steam or stir-fry this week.


Add some colour to these dull winter days with Rainbow Chard/Silverbeet. Like silverbeet, this leafy green veggie has large glossy leaves and thick stems, but as the names suggest rainbow chard can have vibrant red, pink, orange or yellow stems. Both leaves and stems can be eaten raw or cooked. Add finely chopped to salads, soups, stir-fries or serve as a colourful side dish.

Fennel bulb

Victorian grown fennel is at its prime. The aniseed flavour is stronger when raw and becomes milder when cooked. Sautee, bake or add to casseroles and soups. Fennel is fabulous teamed with mild cheeses and is a tasty addition to a risotto or served roasted with a leg of lamb.

This Week's Top Pick


This week’s top pick is the fibre-packed cauliflower, which is a hot buy right now. Cauliflower is extremely versatile, low in calories, and has anti-inflammatory properties. Use cauliflower to make soups, curries, souffles, bakes or stir-frys. Choose creamy white, tightly packed firm heads with a crisp outer green stem and leaves. Avoid heads that feel spongy to touch and has dark spots. Cauliflower also makes a great rice, pizza crust, and steak substitute.
