As always it is a good idea to shop and cook with Australian seasonal fruits and vegetables as they are so much tastier and have a lot more nutrients packed inside.
Out of season produce may have been grown in artificial environments or sprayed with pesticides. For biosecurity reasons imported produce may be subjected to fumigation.
