Seasonal fruits and vegetables are those that are in their peak in terms of flavour or harvest at a particular time of year. Fresh, local fruits and vegetables are a much healthier option, buying in season helps to support local farmers and producers, reduces damage to the environment and is more economical.
In Australia summer runs from December to February. These summer vegetables are great in salads on hot summer’s day and the fruits go perfectly with yoghurt as a healthy summer snack.
