Visitors to the Warragul Farmers’ Market last month would have faced a wall of orange as they walked in, with new oranges glowing in the late winter sun.

Farmer Aimee Fisher told the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen there were two main seasons for the fruit: summer and winter.

We are presently in the middle of the winter season of Navel oranges. In summer, Valencia oranges take over.

Ms Fisher said now was a great time to tuck into a Navel orange.

“At the moment they have a really nice sugar to acid ratio,” she said.

“It’s a good balance.”

Ms Fisher also sells Imperial mandarins, which are approaching the end of their season.
