  • In Season - Oranges

     

     


  • Oranges

    Oranges are the most widely known citrus fruit in the world and are high in nutritional benefits, providing an excellent source of vitamin C with 64% of the recommended daily intake in a 100g serving.

    Like most citrus plants, they requires significant amounts of sunshine and water for orange to grow, and are sensitive to frost. The Riverland is one of the main production areas for oranges in Australia. A number of different varieties of oranges are grown in South Australia.  Navel oranges are the largest grown variety in Australia and are available during the winter months. Sweet and juicy, they are rich in orange colour, seedless and easy to peel.  Valencia oranges are available during the summer months. Deliciously sweet and juicy, they are ideal for eating and juicing.  Seville oranges and blood oranges are also grown in South Australia.

    When selecting oranges look for ones which are firm, heavy in size and have a fine textured skin. Avoid oranges that are bruised, wrinkled or discoloured as this indicates that the fruit is old or has been stored incorrectly.  Citrus fruit peel may vary in thickness and is dependent on the weather conditions during the growing season.

    The Food Forest currently have organic Seville oranges.  Leng Navel oranges are available at DJ Garden Fresh Citrus, and the Kondoprias, Cooinda Proprietors and B + A Andonopoulos stalls also have oranges.

  • Onya Reusable Produce Bags

    onya

    We're doing our bit to help you stop using single use plastic bags. You can now get Onya reusable Produce Bags, an easy replacement for single use plastic fruit and vegetable bags, made from recycled plastic drink bottles from the Market Information Stand.

    These light (only 10 grams per bag) but deceptively strong mesh bags can hold up to 2 kilos of produce and feature a gussett and drawsting tie. Available in a 5 pack the produce bags stuff down into a brightly coloured pouch the size of your fist when not in use.  The bags can be washed simply with a cool water handwash when the need arises, or they can be put on a cool gentle cycle in the washing machine.  Available at the Information Stand: $14 for members and $16 for non-members.
