Winter is a flourish with fresh fruits and vegetables. Australia’s highly regarded Navel Oranges are in abundance and add a zesty punch of vitamin C. Also coming into season are mandarins, tangerines, tangelos and grapefruit varieties. Warm up with roasted sweet potatoes or be spoilt for choice with the range of winter greens now available (perfect for winter time broths and soups).

Look out for the following in-season lines that will start to become available at your nearest supermarket or fresh fruiterer.
