Autumn produce guide: May

Temperatures are finally starting drop in parts of Queensland, as well as the humidity, and this is set to continue as the final month of autumn plays out.

So as we prepare to bid farewell to autumn and welcome in winter, let’s see what’s in season for May.


There’s plenty of fruit available for our enjoyment during May, including feijoas. While far more common in our neighbour New Zealand due to its need of some chilling temperatures, you can still find feijoas if you take the time to look for them. And they’re certainly worth it, boasting a deliciously sweet flavour hit.

  • Apples
  • Avocados
  • Custard apples
  • Kiwifruit
  • Lemons
  • Mandarins; particularly Imperial
  • Nashi
  • Oranges; particularly Naval
  • Pears
  • Persimmons
  • Pomegranates
  • Quinces
  • Rhubarb
  • Figs
  • Strawberry
  • Grapes
  • Passion fruit
  • Feijoas


With the temperatures continuing to drop, it’s good to know that many of the below vegetables work well in soups and stews. But even if you’re looking for vegetables to have in crisper foods, there are still plenty that work on that front, too.

  • Asian greens
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbages
  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Celery
  • Celeriac
  • Chestnuts
  • Fennel
