Winter produce guide: June
Well, it’s almost finally here – Australia’s first month of winter for 2015.
But while the days may be getting much cooler now (dependent on where you live), by no means are we lacking in the fruit and vege department. So let’s take a look at what’s in season for June.
While the number of in-season fruits for June are little lower than the number in May, June still has plenty on offer. Apples unsurprisingly benefit from cooler climates, so winter is a good time for them in many parts of Australia. But whether you’re looking for something sweet or with a more savoury flavour, there’s a fruit for all tastes in June.
- Custard apples
- Oranges; particularly Naval
- Passionfruit; particularly Panama
There plenty of vegetables in season during June, and many of them make great additions to stews and soups, both hearty meals that are perfect for keeping warm during winter.
- Brussels sprouts
- Jerusalem artichokes
- Sweet potato
