Fruit Salad

Fruit Salad Today: Brilliant Berries

A delicious Indian Kesar mango base is brought alive with tangy, tasty Driscoll Maravilla raspberries. This is a lovely new variety that is becoming increasingly popular with recognition by more and more retailers.

Thrown on top are some Cotton Candy grapes, Triumph persimmon and Kirra blueberries. It’s a lovely balanced mix of tastes and flavours: perfect with a dollop of Greek yoghurt.

An invigorating start to the day!

Where to buy?

  • Mango: Kesar from India – Asian groceries and Morrisons
  • Raspberries: Driscoll Maravilla from Portugal are in most larger supermarkets
  • Grapes: Cotton Candy from Brazil are usually in Waitrose and M&S
  • Persimmon: should be easier to find than they are, but often stocked in larger supermarkets
  • Blueberries: all stores, though Kirra, a new variety grown in Morocco, takes some seeking-out

When to buy?

  • Mango: get Indian mangoes now and over the next 2-3 weeks before they finish – they are the best – look for Alphonse or Kesar!
  • Raspberries: all summer
  • Grapes: Cotton Candy supplies from Brazil are restricted, diminishing and pricey
  • Persimmon: available for the next 2 months
  • Blueberries: all summer
