What's in season in Australia this summer

What’s in season this summer?

Summertime brings with it the most incredible selection of seasonal fruit and veg, which is fitting because that’s exactly what our bodies crave at this warm time of year.

When our kitchens are filled with an incredible sea of fresh colourful produce, we know that we’re getting a wide range of nutrients in our diet. So, whether you transform your fruit and veg into full-of-flavour salads, dressed up sides or juicy fruit platters, it’s always important to let the flavours of your produce, shine. And in doing so, we are celebrating local, in season produce that is brought to us by Aussie farmers.

Here’s what’s in season this summer in Australia:

Fresh peaches and nectarines are in season this summer

Stone fruits are not only incredible when eaten fresh, but are also delicious when cooked. Try stone fruit as a sweet addition in savoury ideas like fresh nectarine served alongside fish or peach in a duck salad.
