The bright colours of organic fresh fruit are produced by anti-oxidants, a group of phytonutrients essential for cell protection. Blue/purple/red hues from anthocyanins are found in blueberries, blackberries, prunes, plums, & pomegranates; yellow/green lutein in kiwifruit; pink lycopene in watermelon, pink grapefruit, & guava; yellow-orange carotenoids in mangos, cantaloupe, & apricots.
Flavonoids found in fruit are mostly colourless, but they too help to counteract free-radical formation. They incude the flavonols, myricetin in berries and quercetin in apples, cranberries, and grapes, and the flavanones hesperetin and naringenin both found in citrus fruits and juices.
Please note that our fruit is seasonal. Although we do source organic food from both Northern and Southern hemispheres, there will be gaps in availability.
