Showcasing South Australia’s finest apples and pears
The Apple and Pear Growers Association of South Australia is the main industry body, representing our state’s apple and pear growers since 1977. Our vision is for a sustainable, proactive industry driven by passion, professionalism and collaboration.
Our mission is nurturing, informing, advocating and supporting the South Australian apple and pear industry.
More than ever, Adelaide Hills growers need our support. We encourage you to help make a difference by cutting food waste by purchasing Hailstorm Heroes packs at any local supermarket and green grocer.
The hailstorm damage means there are small marks on many apples, but these marks do not affect the quality, nutrition or taste.
What happens when fruit is taken out of storage? They continue to ripen naturally as they’re transported to the supermarket 🍏 That means they’re in perfect form for our valued consumers when it’s time for that weekly grocery shop 🛒 #GetMunchingSA #HailstormHeroes @SA_PIRSA https://t.co/SBR4fAw8Nj
Do apples or pears lose their nutritional value the longer they’re stored? Not exactly: the fruit keeps the same quality and nutrients for up to a YEAR if they are carefully stored in the right environment 🍎 #GetMunchingSA #HailstormHeroes @SA_PIRSA https://t.co/cY6rLZ2mGj
