I spoke to my suppliers late last week to get an idea as to what fruit and veg is around at the moment. There is plenty of fruit to choose from: New season Royal Gala Apples and William Pears are already available. William Pears tend to ripen up very quickly, and change colour from green to yellow when ready to eat. Keeping them in the fridge will slow down the ripening process on hot days.
Other fruits available this is week include: green seedless grapes, clingstone peaches, nectarines, pineapple, cantaloupe, passionfruit, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, oranges and seedless watermelon.
The holidays are nearly over, time to get back into the fresh and healthy stuff.
