For the past three or four weeks there has been a transition from produce grown locally in Victoria, to produce grown further north in Queensland. The local iceberg lettuce were beginning to get a bit light, which is a sure sign they were getting towards the end of the season. For the next six months, they will be coming out of either NSW or Queensland.
Local strawberries are all but finished, those that are available, will be expensive, and should be eaten quickly. Queensland strawberries should start again in a couple of weeks, most of which are grown on the Sunshine Coast near Nambour (home of the big pineapple).
The past few weeks I’ve been supplying pre-packed corn, individual corn on the cob will be available this week, again it is grown in Queensland.
There is still plenty of local fruit and vegies available now, that are grown in Victoria. Local fruits are: apples, oranges, mandarins, ruby grapefruit, packham pears and hydropinc tomatoes. Vegetables grown locally are: broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, beetroot, rhubarb, baby bukchoy, silverbeet, spring onions and most herbs.
Have a great week.
