While Victoria shivers through the depths of winter, the super-tasty Queensland Strawberries available are a reminder that at least it is warm somewhere…
Australia’s vast size, and varying climate is fantastic for growing, not only a vast range of produce, but also extending the seasons of a lot of fruit and vegetables. While Victoria’s Strawberry season peaks during the summer, Queensland’s peaks during the winter. And it is this complimentary seasonal arrangement that means we get great quality and great value strawberries than we otherwise might.
Look for Strawberries that are deep red and blemish-free, with not too much white on top, and nice green leaves.
It is not only Strawberries that Queensland supplies us at this time of year, but also Raspberries and Blueberries.
