Papaya: This tropical fruit boasts vibrant pinkish-orange flesh with a sweet, tropical flavour. Papayas are not only delicious but also rich in vitamin C, vitamin A, and dietary fibre. Enjoy them fresh, in fruit salads, or blended into smoothies.

Mango: October is a good time to enjoy Northern Territory mangoes. These juicy, sweet fruits are perfect for enjoying on their own, adding to fruit salads, or blending into refreshing mango lassi,  dicing for a fresh salsa or create a delicious breakfast dish.

Hass Avocado: Known for its creamy texture and nutty flavour, the Hass avocado is a versatile ingredient. Mash it for guacamole, slice it for salads, or spread it on toast for a healthy and satisfying snack.

Artichokes: Artichokes have a unique, earthy taste and a tender heart surrounded by edible leaves. Roast or steam them and enjoy the flavourful, meaty centre with a dipping sauce.

Lebanese Cucumbers: These cucumbers are smaller and crisper than their larger counterparts. They are perfect for slicing into salads, adding a refreshing crunch to your dishes, or simply snacking on with a dip.

Blueberries: Blueberries are not only sweet and delicious but also packed with antioxidants. Use them in pancakes, muffins, scones, smoothies, or enjoy them by the handful as a healthy snack.

Zucchini Flowers: Delicate zucchini flowers have a mild, slightly sweet flavour. They are a gourmet delicacy and can be stuffed with cheese, herbs, or other fillings and then lightly fried or baked for a delightful appetiser or side dish.
