Winter tropical fruits of AU?
« on: June 26, 2016, 06:16:05 AM »
My university has a study abroad program in Australia June-July of 2017. What fruits are available in the winter time? On the internet temperate fruits are primarily listed; as well as citrus. I want to know about tropical fruits. I'd love to visit a few you AU TFF members then!
Thanks in advance!

Primary NSW, as well as Sydney and Canberra. Not much details yet.

In Sydney if you visit a place called Cabramatta you will find lots and lots of Asian fruit markets selling all kinds of tropical fruits. I'm not sure if this link will work but here are a couple of photos I took last time I was there https://www.facebook.com/urbanfruitfarmer/posts/1757345371217666

Sounds interesting. I'll have 3 free days to roam, and I'd love to visit it! Thanks!

While Canberra is well below zero most evenings right now Cairns bottomed out at a brisk 21c in the last week.At Rusty's market  durians and sam ru du mangoes were still available and the last of the rambutans were selling. There are still jackfruit,avos and black sapote and I have jaboticabas,canistels and ross sapotes on my trees. That is 2434km to the north of Sydney however,
