What’s in season: Orange fruits – your immunity boosters

As the last weeks of Autumn are upon us, now is the time to dose up on that lovely Vitamin C – it’s your best chance at helping to fight those nasty winter bugs the natural way. And did you know orange coloured fruits are the way to go?
Fruits coloured orange and yellow aid in eye health, help to reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol, promote healthy joints and are often full of that great Vitamin C. Lucky for you there are loads of orange fruits in season at the Market right now. We have delicious persimmons. Known for their sweet, honey-like flavour, persimmons are high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C and loaded with fibre. Imperial mandarins are also in season now. Another of the vitamin-packed orange fruits, mandarins are great for school lunches, a snack on the go, used in juice, cakes, desserts and sorbet. And everyone’s favourite winter immunity booster, navel oranges, are on their way to Market too. We should have plenty of navel oranges available within the next two weeks. You can find persimmons, imperial mandarins and navel oranges from our friends at Auddino’s Produce – just look for the splash of bright orange colour!
