‘Tis the season

Nothing says summer quite like biting into a sweet, juicy nectarine.

Peaches, apricots, plums – they’re all in season in the Yarra Valley during the summer months.

Also ripe and ready for the picking during December and January are cherries.

Visitors can even take up the opportunity to pick their own cherries at several Yarra Valley orchards.

Blackberries, blueberries and raspberries are also at their best during summer in the valley.

Other fruits in season include grapes, honeydew melon, rockmelon, watermelon and Valencia oranges.
