Fruit and Veg

Welcome to 2012 in the Adelaide Central Market and to the season return of the unusual flat peaches. They are called Saturn peaches and are a member of the white peach family. Also called doughnut peach, paraguayo peach, pan tao peach, saucer peach, belly-up peach, and UFO peach.
They taste fantastic, are very sweet and creamy and have a skin that has less fuzz and are easier to peel. Punch out the seed, fill with icecream and you have a heaven sent dessert.
Saturns are available at Coco's, S20/21 and cost $4.99 per punnet of 6. Also at Coco's look for the exotic rambutan $2.50 each, baby Paradise pears $12.95 kg, luscious raspberries $6.99 kg and the never seen before plumcots for $9.95 kg. Yes, plumcots. They are a cross between the apricot and plum genus , have a rose complexion and have the texture of apricot and the juice of a plum. Very yummy.
