Australia’s juicy stonefruits are the epitome of summer
Simple yet satisfying!
It’s harvest time for Australia’s summerfruits, which means Vietnamese consumers can now enjoy our summerfruits with some of the world’s best-eating peaches and nectarines that are sweet and tangy, crispy and crunchy, soft and juicy, and everything in between.
Australian summerfruit is produced in approximately 26 regions across the country. Victoria and New South Wales are the largest producing regions followed by South Australia, Queensland, Western Australia, and Tasmania. Production has risen by approximately 25% over the last decade and 400 growers now produce over 125,000 tonnes per annum (according to 2022 industry report).
Thanks to the unique micro-climates across Australia and its rich soils, Australia’s warm climate and hot, dry summers promote sweeter, juicier summer stonefruit. Also, its proximity to Asia enables lower freight costs, better access to fresh markets in the region; As well as preserving the flavorsome process from farm straight to consumer’s hands.
The Australian Summer Fruits industry is committed to producing superior fruits under the strictest quality standards and using innovative eco-friendly farming practices. This guarantees that all stoned fruits will remain at a temperature of 0 – 2 degrees Celsius throughout the cold storage process after harvest, shipping, and stored at 8 – 25 degrees Celsius when it comes to consumer’s hands to maintain the freshness, crispness, and quality when they arrive in Vietnam.
Being currently available in the Vietnam market, we proudly present Australian peaches and nectarines. Peaches are recognised by their velvety or fuzzy skin, which is commonly yellow and red, or red and white. Peach flesh also ranges in colour from white to rich orange, depending on the variety, but is grouped into white or yellow varieties. Ripe peaches have delicate aroma and may give slightly under gentle pressure. Like nectarines, peaches can be categorised as either freestone (flesh falling away from the pit) or clingstone (the flesh clings to the pit). Nectarines, or ‘nectar of the Gods’, are a variety of peaches with a smooth yellow, orange or red skin and either white or yellow juicy flesh. Yellow nectarines can taste both sweet and tart, while white nectarines are sweet while still being firm and crunchy. Both types will express more juice as the fruit softens. Nectarine flesh is highly aromatic and very juicy when ripe. In general, when Australian summer fruit ripens it will begin to soften and become more juicy, with a very sweet natural aroma.
