After 40 years of supply,
we know fresh produce!
Established in 1971, Fruitorama was founded by the
late Vincenzo Raschella who’s aim was to provide
customers nationally with quality Australian potatoes,
sweet potatoes, pumpkins, onions and melons.
Still 100% family owned, the Fruitorama business is
made up of two main facilities – our wholesale trading
facility based within the Adelaide Produce Markets,
and our logistics warehouse based just outside of the
Adelaide Produce Markets in Pooraka, North Adelaide.
The team of over 20 are lead by Vincenzo’s sons Enzo
and Tony Raschella, who are involved in the day to day
strategic management of the Fruitorama business and
sister company The South Australian Potato Company.
Our white potatoes remain a favourite amongst Australian households. Ranging from snow-white to cream in colour with white-yellow flesh, with a consistently smooth skin finish. Our white washed potatoes are renowned for their versatile use. White potatoes are ideal for mashing.
Exclusive to the South Australian Potato Company, the Kestrel Potato is instantly recognisable by its smooth white skin and unique purple spots. The purple skin markings are formed naturally by antioxidants called anthocyanin, the flavonoid also found in other superfoods such as blueberries. The Kestrel potato is a great
all-rounder, particular good for making home-made chips.
Our red potatoes are a staple in many Australian households characterised by their deep coloured red skin
and white to cream coloured flesh. Our red potatoes lend themselves well to many cooking methods and are best eaten with skin on to maximise nutritional benefits. Red potatoes are best for roasting.
Popular in Australian households, the sweet potato is characterised by golden skin and bright orange flesh. Packed-full of nutrients, sweet potatoes are great for creating mash, bake or fries.
Brown onions have a brownish-yellow skin and cream coloured flesh. Brown onions are the most
popular variety in Australia, with a strong flavour they are great for grilling, frying and roasting.
Sometimes called Spanish onions, the Red onion have a deep purple skin colour and white flesh.
Milder in taste, the red onion is the perfect addition to salads.
Also milder and sweeter in flavour than the brown onion, the white onion can be eaten raw
and added to salads and sandwiches.
The butternut pumpkin is a
popular Australian variety known
for its unique shape, pale orange
skin and bright orange flesh,
great for soups.
