Plums are a good source of vitamins, dietary fibre and products that help regulate the digestive system, and plums are available now from Young District Stone Fruit and Torry Hills Orchards.

Up next we have daikon. This mild flavoured radish variety is often used in Asian cuisine, and we have daikon in stock now from Dilliro Vegetables and B&S Fresh Produce.

Still on the vegies, we’ve also got eggplant available over the next few weeks. Also known as aubergine, eggplants are related to the tomato and the potato and is a species of nightshade with white flesh – they’re just gorgeous in Mediterranean and vegetarian cuisines. Grab your stocks of eggplant from Dilliro Vegetables and Wollondilly Produce.

And finally, back onto fruits – this month will be a cracker for melons with watermelon and rockmelon in good stocks from Melissa Pure Fresh Honey and G. Dicerbo –  Riverland.
