Early this morning at Parklea Markets in outer Sydney we were spoilt for choice for the finest apples and pears brought to us direct from the premier fruit growing region of Orange in NSW.
With those magnificent apples, just picked, crisp and delicious, it was hard to decide which varieties to buy this week. Then there were the many different varieties of sweet pears.
I have written before about the great fruit that is brought to us every weekend by fruit growers Boris and Rod Ostini and thought it was time to remind those who live in the Sydney area to get to Parklea Markets and buy the best value, crispest apples and sweetest pears you will ever taste.
Look out for Stall No. 257 and the this banner:
This is what I bought today: Corella and William pears, Granny Smith, Fuji, Jonathan, Jonagold, Snow, Gala and Sundowner. I can’t describe the heady perfume of the apples upon opening the shopping bags when I got home. Needless to say I have munched my way through two already!
Here is a just selection of what was on offer today…so many varieties:
Thanks Boris and Rod for bringing us fresh Australian apples, pears and other seasonal fruits every week. We city slickers salute all the fruit producers of the Orange region and I encourage everyone to come along and taste the wonder of this fruit for yourself!
I repost two images that Boris shared with us of the farm in Orange . What an amazing sight.
