either online or in store to go into the draw for both the $5,000 major prize and a $100 gift voucher for their local fruit shop,” Ms Thurston said.

Noosa residents can visit Tewantin Plaza Fruit Centre or Maluka Produce to enter the draw.

Maluka Produce store manager Jamie Knight said getting behind local fruit shop is important.

“Customers can be confident if it is local it will be good quality,” Mr Knight said.

“We don’t need to have fruit with a six week shelf life, we get two deliveries a week,” he said.
