Autumn Produce Guide May

May is a transitional month, not only for temperatures but also for produce. As we reach the end of Autumn, cooler seasonal produce like quinces, persimmons, custard apples, and root vegetables start to fill out the supermarket shelves.

In southern Queensland, the biggest vegetable crops include broccoli, tomatoes, onions, pumpkins, and potatoes. These are grown in the major vegetable producing regions of the Lockyer and Fassifern Valleys, the Eastern Darling Downs and the Granite Belt.

Now is the perfect time to make the most of this local, seasonal produce.
