South Australian Produce Market communications manager Penny Reidy said retailers could help drive sales by cutting up fruit for display. "They all quite often look the same on the outside, so if you're just scanning the aisle you really can't tell the difference," she said. "It's not until you open it up that you realise it has a different flesh colour and a different flavour profile."
Ms Reidy said cara cara navels, which have a pink flesh, have been attracting more interest from consumers in the last four to five years. "They're a medium-sized navel that's seedless, sweet, low in acid, really easy to peel and they actually contain 20 per cent more vitamin C than a navel," she said.
