PEACHES: Tuck into some peaches dur­ing the Aus­tralian sum­mer sea­son from late Novem­ber un­til April. Like any fruit, peaches should feel heavy for their size. Can’t eat all the peaches quickly enough? Freeze them. Frozen peaches are fab­u­lous in baked goods, smooth­ies and ice cream. Price: about $5.40/kg WATER­MELON: Chilled water­melon wedges make the ul­ti­mate thirst quencher on hot days. Choose cut seedless water­melon with an even colour. Team with rocket, feta, and black olives for a re­fresh­ing sum­mer salad. Price: about $2.20/kg

RASP­BER­RIES: En­joy raw or cooked. Add to ce­real, muesli or waf­fles. Stir through jel­lies, pud­dings, fruit or green sal­ads or in drinks. Puree to make sher­bet, smooth­ies, ice­blocks or dress­ing. Bake into crum­bles, breads, cakes, tarts or muffins. Price: About $5/pun­net
