Between the months of March and May, SA’s apple orchards start bearing fruit, which come in an assortment of autumn colours and varieties; including Sundowners, Red Delicious, Fuji and Pink Ladies. The tarter green Granny Smiths are the best for a tasty apple pie, as they hold their form better when cooked or stewed. Local pears are also in season, with Adelaide Hills Packham and Bosc among popular favourites for eating fresh or cooking in desserts like our Carmelised pear and ginger crumble.
Lesser known fruits such as Persimmon, Feijoa and Quinces are also in season around Autumn, and are great in desserts, jams, jellies or an accompaniment to your favourite cheese platter.
