A Guide to Seasonal Fruits in Australia

Australia is a country with plenty of natural produce. The land and the climate is great and diverse, allowing for a wide variety of fruits and vegetables to be grown here. Every season there’s something fresh and new, unique to those months, available in the market. With such diversity, you don’t really need to consume or use off-season fruits that have to be imported from other areas.

Eating fruits that are seasonal reduces the environmental impact that farming and shipping them off-season has. It also encourages the consumption of local produce and encourages the local farming community. At Ganache Patisserie, we believe that the fruit that’s naturally grown during its growing season is simply more flavourful and enjoyable. Here’s a brief guide to the seasonal fruits in Australia that would allow you to understand which food is seasonal in what area.
