Veggies thrive in cold cli­mate

Central and North Burnett Times - - THE FENCE POST -

FRUIT and veg­eta­bles are not im­mune to sea­sonal changes, and with win­ter loom­ing, dif­fer­ent colours should start to line the pantry.

Mur­gon Fruit Mart owner Paul Brun­jes said the ma­jor­ity of the cit­rus fruits were go­ing out of sea­son but it was prime time for a lot of veg­eta­bles.

“Grow­ing con­di­tions for cau­li­flower and broc­coli are look­ing up,” he said.

“When it’s too hot the sun burns the top of them.

“But now it’s get­ting colder so they’ll be in their prime.”

He said although av­o­ca­dos were avail­able all year round, they were com­ing into sea­son now. This month: 6.65 Move­ment: 1.41 This month: 3.65 Move­ment: 4.57
