CHER­RIES are in great sup­ply through to Fe­bru­ary. They are a quin­tes­sen­tial sum­mer fruit – healthy, tasty, ver­sa­tile and great value for money. They can be en­joyed in many ways – cher­ries are a smart snack­ing choice, per­fect as lunch box treats or great in fes­tive feasts and bak­ing. Pun­net: $8.90; $2.97/100g.

ROCKMELON Best in sum­mer. Rockmelon has a dis­tinc­tive taste and fra­grant scent. Halve, de­seed and us­ing a melon baller, scoop out balls, then layer in serv­ing glasses with le­mon sor­bet. For a quick ap­pe­tiser, wrap pro­sciutto slices around rockmelon wedges. $4.90 each.

PASSIONFRUIT: Look for fruit that feels slightly heavy for its size. Skin should feel rel­a­tively thick and be slightly wrin­kled (Panama and Hawai­ian passionfruit will have smoother skin). Store at room tem­per­a­ture or in the fridge. Use a sharp knife to cut in half – en­joy straight or scoop out the pulp for cook­ing. $1.90 each
