Grapes (Green and Red)

First cultivated 6,000 years ago, grapes have survived the test of time and are today one of Alwaysfruits's most popular fruits! From providing Roman emperors with the health to govern empires to helping office employees get through the day, grapes carry a variety of health benefits for the hard-working mind!

Grapes are rich in natural sugars. Natural sugars stimulate the brain so we can think faster and recall information more quickly. They also help to prolong performance and reduce tiredness at work.

Grapes are also a good source of phyto-chemicals which act as powerful antioxidants, cholesterol fighters and immune-system boosters. This makes grapes an essential detox fruit to help you through the day after those mid-week drinks! The skin and seeds of red grapes contain a powerful antioxidant called resveratrol. It improves circulation, protects the skin from wrinkles and lack of elasticity, promotes healing and may reduce inflammatory conditions such as arthritis - grapes are therefore a great help against the effects of sitting at your office desk for long hours.

We like to include the following varieties: Autumn Royal, Thompson, Sugraone, Crimson and Flame.

Apples (Red and Green)

Throughout our childhood we were always told "An apple a day keeps the doctor away!" - well, we have found out that this is still the case!

Apples are rich in pectin, which acts as an antioxidant against cholesterol levels in our blood streams. Antioxidants are chemicals which help prevent cancer by reducing or preventing oxidisation, thus countering cell and tissue damage from free radicals in the body. After eating an apple you can feel more assured that your heavy client lunch.

Apples also contain Vitamin A which helps your vision - handy for all those hours sitting in front of the computer screen. This is likely to mean fewer visits to the optician!

Finally, due to a compound named Procyanidin B-2, apples have also been shown to help slow ageing-related problems, preventing wrinkles and promoting hair growth.

We like to include the following varieties: Braeburn, Granny Smith, Cripps Pink, Red Delicious, Pink Lady, Golden Delicious, Russet, Red Chief and Fuji.

Plums

Although a member of the rose family, we are pleased to say that plums are generally more popular to eat than flowers. In fact, they are so popular that there are approximately 2,000 varieties grown worldwide - from which we like to select the tastiest ones!

Plums are rich in antioxidants which fight the damage caused to cells from villain molecules called "free radicals." When free radicals attack cells the risk of heart disease and cancer increases significantly. As most people find it hard to have a healthy life-style when working hard, plums can help get the required antioxidant intake.

According to the Produce for Better Health Foundation, dark plums may help preserve memory function - a great tool to help remind you that it's your boss's birthday!

From the 2,000 varieties of plums available, we like to include the following ones: Sapphire, Black Diamond, Black Amber, Greengages, Fortune, Larry Anne, Laetitia, Santa Rosa and Red Beauty.

Clementines and satsumas

Clementines, tangerines, mandarins and satsumas are all called soft citrus fruits. We prefer to include soft citrus fruits to oranges as they are less cumbersome to eat in the office i.e. easier to peel!

Soft citrus fruits are the "Niagara Falls" of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is critical for your immune system and all-round health. It acts as an anti-viral agent which helps to resist (or speed up recovery from) that pesky annual flu which spreads around the office during the autumn and winter months.
They also contain Vitamin B1 which helps reduce stiffness and tiredness in the workplace - particularly useful after that heavy session at the gym the day before!
We like to include the following varieties: Mandarins, Tangerines, Clementines, Satsumas, Mineolas, Clemenules, Clemenvillas, Orteniques and Ellendales.

Strawberries

Strawberries always remind us of the Aussie countryside, the Oxbridge boat race and Melbourne Cup. But we also think that these delicious berries are important for hard-working employees.

Strawberries are rich in Vitamin C. Vitamin C is critical for your immune system and all-round health. It acts as an anti-viral agent which helps to resist (or speed up recovery from) that pesky annual flu which spreads around the office during the autumn and winter months.

Strawberries also contain Vitamin A which aids cell reproduction - this can help against skin dryness in air-conditioned workplaces.

Finally, strawberries contain potassium which is important in the transmission of nerve impulses, heart rhythm and muscle function - a perfect aid for the fast-paced office environment!

We like to include the following varieties: Royal Sovereign and Jubilee.

Bananas

Bananas are our most popular fruit and not just because they are easy to peel!

They contain energy-boosting natural sugars which keep the motor running during those long hours in the office. According to studies carried out at the Institute of Psychology in Australia, pressure at work leads to snacking on unhealthy comfort food like chocolate and crisps. Eating bananas helps to control our sugar levels and avoid panic-induced junk food cravings.

Bananas are also a great source of potassium which helps to control blood pressure - especially important when you are working hard "in the zone"! An average banana contains approximately 400 mg of potassium - which is more than the recommended daily intake of this important mineral.

Finally, according to a study carried out by MIND, bananas are known to improve your mood and generally make you feel happier. Apparently this is because bananas contain trypotophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin - known to bring about this enlightening effect. Pretty useful to help "non-morning people" make it through the first hours of the day.

We only include the Cavendish type, since they are the highest quality.

Cherries

Research shows that cherries contain a rich source of melatonin, which helps to improve sleeping patterns. After a hard day at the office, with the mind still racing about this and that, cherries get to work after you have switched off the lights to go to sleep!

"Anthocyanins" found in cherries also block inflammatory enzymes, helping to reduce general pain. In fact, researchers believe that 20 cherries are 10 times as potent as an aspirin.

Finally, cherries are considered to contain large amounts of quercetin which, according to researchers, has anti-carcinogenic properties.

Peaches and nectarines

"You're a real peach" originated from the tradition of giving a peach to your best friend. We like to include them for our customers!

Peaches and nectarines are rich in Vitamin C which plays a fundamental role in defending our bodies from all kinds of infections. Vitamin C prevents the conversion of nitrates from smoking and smog into cancerous agents.

They are also an excellent natural replenishing source of mineral salts and especially of potassium. In the summer, or after a session at the gym, when the body is subject to high temperatures, sweating causes a great loss of mineral salts and of potassium in particular. Peaches and nectarines are an excellent natural source of potassium, which has a beneficial effect on the heartbeat, growth, muscular contraction, and on the balance of the nervous system - perfect for the ups and downs of a stressful day at the office!

Finally, peaches and nectarines also contain a fair quantity of Beta-carotene. Our bodies transform Beta-carotene into retinol or vitamin A - which is very important in maintaining eyesight in an optimal condition. This may help to protect your eyesight from all those hours in front of the computer screen.

Pears

Pears have an odd-looking shape and thick skin - so what can they possibly offer to office workers looking to keep healthy? Besides a juicy and delicious taste, quite a lot actually...

Pears contain a high level of fibre when the peel is intact. Fibre is an essential element in the human diet. It helps to limit sugar levels in the blood stream, and aids the functioning of the digestive system. In addition, fibre helps to regulate and reduce cholesterol levels. This can help reduce the harmful effects of any fried meals!

In addition, pears are a natural, quick source of energy due largely to high amounts of fructose, glucose and carbohydrates - this is particularly helpful to reduce tiredness on the cold winter mornings!

We like to include the following varieties: Conference, Fourelle, Packhams, Ya, Red Bartlett and Williams.

Fresh figs

Did you know that fig trees have no blossoms on their branches? The blossom of the tree is inside the fruit! This means that when you eat a fig you are actually eating many tiny flowers!

Figs are an excellent source of dietary fibre. Dietary fibre aids digestion which can be a big help after those heavy client lunches!

According to the US National Cancer Institute it also helps to reduce the risk of several types of cancer.
