Backyard Bounty all-Tasmanian Vegie box: 4th March

This week’s fruit supplement celebrates home-grown fruit – in addition to half a kg of blueberries from Tru Blu Berries (who aren’t a home-grower!), fruit supplements include a selection of the following: plums (Simone and a prune type) from Glenorchy grower Justin, plums and nashi pears from Mt Stuart home grower Bec, and Red Love apples from John. John is of course our potato grower, but like many farmers he also has a productive “home garden”, and in this he has a range of fruit trees, often rarer varieties which he enjoys experimenting with. Red Love is an apple variety that bears fruit that’s red all the way through, with a deliciously tart flavour. Tasmania being what it is, of course, Justin is actually John’s cousin!
