Australian SummerFruits are Sweeter When Shared

It is an amazing time to enjoy Australia's delectable summer fruits as they are sweeter than ever!~ I absolutely LOVE the sweet aroma of peaches so it was heavenly in Village Grocer. With Taste Australia's "Sweeter When Shared" campaign, now you can have a sweeter Chinese New Year and Valentine's!
Avoid the typical Chinese New Year gift baskets this year and choose unique Australian summer fruits instead! I guarantee that your friends and family will love you for it.

Peaches symbolise a long and healthy life while the round shape and vibrant colours are said to symbolise prosperity and good fortune.

Australia's succulent nectarines, peaches, plums and apricots are sure to fill your loved ones with happiness. I couldn't pick which one I liked more so I just cut them up and served a beautiful colourful platter.
