Winter produce guide: July
July is almost upon us, so once again it’s time to look at what’s in season during the second month of winter throughout Australia.
Not surprisingly, July tends to qualify as the coldest month in Australia, even if this can occasionally change year-to-year. Either way, even though things have now cooled right down, there’s still plenty of fruit and vegetables to enjoy.
Don’t let the cooler temperatures deter you from thinking that fruit isn’t readily available. Whether it’s the sweetness of an apple or the more savoury affair of an avocado (or going tangy/sour with some lemons), there’s plenty to choose from in July.
- Custard apples
- Oranges; particularly Naval
July sees a couple more vegetables added to the in-season list compared to June, so there’s an abundance of options available to you. Suffice to say, you’ve got plenty to add to a delicious and hearty soup/stew.
- Brussels sprouts
- Jerusalem artichokes
- Sweet potato
