Sum­mer sweet­ness

Nadia - - WHAT’S COOKIN’? -

Gis­borne’s golden rays

Ja­son Gal­loway is hugely proud of the En­core Man­darins he’s grown on his prop­erty in sunny Gis­borne for the past 14 years. “Be­ing out­side in the sun­shine, grow­ing fruit that’s ab­sorb­ing all the great Gizzy rays is what it’s all about,” he says.

Juicy stuff

Grown com­mer­cially only in the Gis­borne re­gion, En­core Man­darins are unique, with a flavour pro­file that sets them apart from the rest, says Ja­son. “Aro­matic and juicy, they’re one of the sweet­est things around!”

On-the-go good­ness

Ja­son reck­ons these minia­ture bun­dles of sweet, juicy good­ness make a su­per­con­ve­nient on-the-go snack, healthy lunch­box filler and tasty ad­di­tion to sal­ads and desserts. Easy to peel, they also freeze well and make de­li­cious ice cubes for re­fresh­ing sum­mer drinks.

Healthy choice

Low in fat and rich in vi­ta­mins A, B and C, plus min­er­als such as iron, mag­ne­sium, potas­sium and cal­cium, En­core Man­darins also boast a high fi­bre con­tent of 14 per­cent.

Make your sum­mer sweet and healthy – get some Gizzy En­core Man­darins from your lo­cal re­tailer to­day.

“The most re­ward­ing part is grow­ing topqual­ity fruit that’s 100 per­cent Kiwi” – Ja­son Gal­loway, grower, First Fresh
