Good food is all about great ingredients and using the freshest produce you can lay your hands on. We have teamed up with the wonderful folk from Summerfruit NZ to provide you with information on what’s in season.


Emma Logan,  Summerfruit NZ Market Manager reports each week throughout the season and this week says:

 

WEEK – 03 April 2012

 

NORTH ISLAND
Hawkes Bay

 

Peacharines, plums, and a late peach with yellow flesh are the last three varieties to go
before the Hawkes Bay Summerfruit season ends in the next couple of weeks. Persistent
rain over the last few weeks has bought an early end to the Golden Queen peaches.

 

 

SOUTH ISLAND
Central Otago

 

Central Otago still has plums available over the next two weeks.
Nectarines, apricots and peaches have all finished harvesting for the season and most of the
markets are empty; a few small, late, pockets of fruit may crop up here and there around the
South Island.
