Seasonal fruit and vegie update

Don’t miss the delicious red papaya from Rob and Kadi at Clothiers Creek Fresh Produce. It is packed with flavour  and super healthy with its dark orange flesh and  is a good source of Vitamin C and beta carotene. Serve with some passionfruit and cream for a delicious dessert or add some to a mixed salad and sprinkle over macadamia dukkah – simply divine!
