When we think of autumn, we immediately think of pumpkin! The name derives from the Greek word meaning 'large melon.' Funny that, it indeed belongs to the same family as melons, cucumbers and courgettes! As pumpkins contain seeds and grow on vines, it is in fact considered a fruit, rather than a veggie – who knew?!
Corn on the cob is a celebrated highlight of summer, and is plentiful from December – March. We love it grilled to perfection on the BBQ, but it's also great steamed, boiled or roasted. Served with a generous smothering of butter and salt – now that's deliciously hot, messy goodness! Check out our recipes for some of our favourite ways on how to serve this juicy veg!
Sweet Palermo capsicums, also known as King Sweeties have less seeds than regular capsicums, are sweet and have a thin skin, allowing them to cook quicker. This specialty capsicum grows in two colours (for now!), vibrant red and yellow, with yellow being the sweetest. Try our new summer-inspired recipes that highlight this one of a kind veggie.
