Not so perfect produce
I'm quite disappointed by this App. It was recommended by a major Melbourne newspaper so I thought it would indicate the Australian seasonality of fruit and vegetables - I assumed it would have a location function or something equivalent BUT it is only assuming a northern hemisphere location. It would've been great to have a 'currently in season' function. But really, it contains very basic search functions and limited information. Disappointed I'm afraid.
It doesn't matter that the seasons are US it can be applied to the opposite in Australia I have used this app many times & have found it very useful
