As we near the end of the year, not only can we look forward to warm beach days and holidays but also the refreshing juiciness of summer stonefruits. Enjoyed whole as a healthy snack, mixed in your favourite juice combos, baked desserts or grilled on the BBQ to mix up your salad recipes: the options are endless with in season peaches, nectarines, apricots and plums.
Supply of summer stonefruit is based on a staggered flow of different varieties, each lasting only a week or two which means there is a fresh, new variety at green grocers and supermarkets each week. What’s great about stonefruit? It’s rich in vitamins A, C and E and a great source of dietary fibre and potassium.
