With spring well under way now we have lots of yummy and fresh, locally grown produce come into season.
This week we are sharing a feature from the 5+ a Day website where you can find out what New Zealand grown produce is in season at any time. Lots of fresh fruit and vegetables are available year round as they can be grown inside or imported, but this information is specifically about New Zealand grown produce.
In season at the moment are:
- Artichokes (globe)
- Brussel Sprouts
- Kiwifruit (gold and green)
- Navel oranges
For information on availability, storage and handling, history, growing facts and nutritional information, visit the 5+ a Day website at http://www.5aday.co.nz/whats-in-season.aspx then filter your results to October.
