What’s fresh

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LIFESTYLE - with Nick Mo­raitis

GET a taste of sum­mer early by sam­pling some of the stone fruits start­ing to ap­pear at the shops.

Nec­tarines and peaches from the North Coast of NSW are be­com­ing avail­able as the sea­son gets started. The white va­ri­eties have a beau­ti­ful fresh flavour and are very sweet.

When shop­ping, take a good look at the fruit be­fore you buy: it should stand out and shine.

It is worth buy­ing nec­tarines and peaches when the flesh is firm and let­ting them ripen in the fruit bowl at home be­fore tak­ing a bite.

Ba­nanas con­tinue to be good value, along with as­para­gus and blue­ber­ries.

Or try en­joy­ing a slice of fresh seed­less water­melon. I love eat­ing this re­fresh­ing fruit with bread and cheese at home.

Man­goes from the Northern Ter­ri­tory are start­ing to come into sea­son. The fruit re­mains ex­pen­sive but the flavour is lovely.

WATER­MELON Cost: $1.50/kg
