Spring produce guide: November
In a few days, the final month of Spring will be here, and with it a wealth of produce – both on the fruit and vegetable front – for us to enjoy.
So as the heat ramps up and we move into the final month before Summer, here are some of the fantastic fruits and vegetables worth checking out in November.
Queensland faced an absolute scorcher earlier this week, with Monday being one of the hottest days throughout several regions of Queensland since January. So the fact so many refreshing fruits are now in season is a welcome fact.
Whether you sit down and have a slice of pineapple on its own, make a fruit smoothie or even put together a fruit-inspired cocktail, there are plenty of great options available in November for helping you stay cool and refreshed.
- Berries; particularly blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries
- Oranges; particularly Valencia oranges
Popeye was a lover of spinach, and his promotion of the vegetable helped boost sales of the product over the years. But spinach is a fantastic vegetable in its own right. It may not have as much valuable iron as once thought, but it’s certainly good for you. More importantly, if you chuck it on an Eggs Benedict, it really helps complement the dish.
Of course, spinach isn’t the only vegetable to thrive in November. So if you’re personally not that big of a fan of spinach, you also have the following vegetables to choose from:
- Asian greens
- Beans; particularly Green beans
- Onions; particularly Spring and Green onions
- Zucchini flowers
