Australia is approaching summer, and with that comes an abundance of stone fruits. This includes the ever-popular peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots, and cherries!
The continent being on the Southern hemisphere means that while the majority of the world is experiencing colder weather, Australia is instead experiencing hot summer and bountiful harvests– in time for the festive year-end season!
As it is now the stone fruit season, there’s an abundance of fruits available in Australian orchards. As such, Malaysia will also see the prices of imported Australian fruits drop for the time being, so we can stock up on all our favourite fresh fruits.
Australian stone fruits are particularly appropriate for the year-end holiday, as they make for a festive addition with their bright colours and sweet tastes. You’d be able to enjoy decadent delights such as cherry pies or fruit tarts, or even the whole fruit on its own.
Additionally, we’ve been told that Australia takes particular care to keep their exported fruits fresh and crisp even after transport.
We were able to maintain signature Australian quality in terms of freshness and taste, from the moment they leave our ports until they reach your grocery bags.Paul Sanda, Minister Counsellor (Commercial) and Senior Trade Commissioner
In a bid to encourage more Malaysians to try fresh Australian fruits, Taste Australia is runing the Basket of Summer Joy contest from 19th Dec to 26th Feb 2022. For more information, head over here.
