Locally grown Navel oranges are now available replacing the Valencia variety. Navels are the winter variety, and are more suitable for eating. Valencias are the summer variety, and more suitable for juicing.
Talking about locally grown, Broccoli has reduced in price, and is really good value at the moment. A lot of our vegetables at the moment are grown up north, because it’s getting too cold down here.
The best of the Victorian grown veggies are broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, potatoes, onions and celery. Iceberg lettuce is still in short supply, Cos lettuce is still the best alternative.
All apples now are new season, and there are plenty of varieties to choose from.
Have a great week!
