Does anyone else feel like we’ve zoomed through January in under a week? How is it almost February already!? As the saying goes ‘when one door closes, another opens’, the same is true for fruit! One summer fruit season comes to an end, another begins! We have had some really exciting things going on at Divine Fruits over the last couple of weeks and just had to share for anyone that missed out!
We have lift-off! – Of Nicoletti Orchards – Yay!
What an amazing launch we had of Nicoletti Orchards at Rose City Fruits! The turn out from locals and tourists alike was incredible! We were blown away with how much everyone loves to support our Aussie growers! Of course, they just couldn’t get past that Stanthorpe crunch of the new season royal gala, that’s right we even saw a few of you coming back for not only seconds but thirds! Keep an eye on our Instagram and Facebook for everything Nicoletti in the coming months!
I.M. SWEET’s Sweetest Season Yet!
We’ve wrapped up Goulburn Valley’s I.M. SWEET season and what a season it was! The harvest was heavy with those amazing ‘Golden Bites of Sunshine’ heading to local fruit shops every day, and shoppers just couldn’t get enough! So sweet, so juicy and with that real apricot flavour that’s so hard to find these days! The flavour explosion was perfect in award-winning Chef Javier Codinas creation of Brisbane Valley Quail Escabeche with I.M. SWEET Apricots. The Sherif family work year-round to bring you the most delicious apricots and we want to say THANKYOU! For everything, you do both during harvest and in the off-season.
Roll up, roll up, roll up! It’s time for the Stanthorpe Show!
We love the Stanthorpe show and can’t wait to attend this year! For those of you who haven’t heard, it’s on from the 1st – 3rd of February at Stanthorpe showgrounds. We are so excited to see all of the local produce showcased in the pavilions and highly recommend everyone come along to the cooking show! There is really something for everyone to jump onto their Facebook page for more info and we’ll see you there!
