In Season Fruit and Veggie Advice

Get more value for money when doing your fruit and vegetable shopping by buying produce that is in season.

Certain plants only flower and produce fruit and vegetables at certain times of the year. As all the farmers have to harvest around the same time, it increases supply and reduces the general cost, hence saving you money.

Supermarkets generally dedicate large displays to this produce and reduce the price to move more stock. So not only are you buying fresher produce, it is also cheaper!!

Look for produce that is generally cheap, and in the large displays.

June is a great month for:
FRUIT: Bananas, grapefruit, and lemons.
VEGETABLES: Bean shoots; Broccoli; Carrot; Cauliflower; Pumpkin; and Silverbeet.

An added benefit apart from the cheaper prices, is that eating in season is a great way to increase your variety!! This is nature’s way of making sure our bodies get a healthy mix of nutrients and plant chemicals.
