Australian Fresh Fruits: Now! In Season

Plump, luscious cherries; crisp, ultra-refreshing nectarines; peaches, apricots, plums & other stone fruits, bursting with naturally nectarous juices: Summer is in full swing in Australia, & the sun-ripened harvest from Down Under has swiftly reached Malaysian shores, bringing the season's best to selected stores. If you love fruits, this bumper crop is the way to go - safe, wholesome goodness that the entire family will greatly enjoy, the focus of a new campaign called 'Now! In Season,' a global initiative spearheaded by the Victoria State Government, Australian Government, & Horticulture Innovation Australia.

Thanks to the campaign for this sampling of fruits that we loved - a testament to distinctive produce at its peak, grown in quality soil, nurtured with continuously clean water, & cultivated to stringent health guidelines. Each bite felt like we'd plucked them straight off a tree in a Goulburn Valley orchard. You'll find these antioxidant-rich treats now at Village Grocer, Jaya Grocer, AEON, & Isetan KLCC; more temptations like table grapes & citrus fruits will come this year as the seasons change.

  1. We got plums, a family friend gave one whole box. So sour...but once, ripened so very sweet and juicy. Very very nice.

    1. Suituapui: good fruits do make a great gift - sounds lovely! :)

  2. So happy to see fresh and beautiful fruits but they are not cheap though :(

    1. Choi Yen: yeah, but i do think they're worth the premium! ;)
