Preheat your oven to 180C. Place the flour, brown sugar & ground ginger in a large bowl and mix it together. Taking a few cubes of butter at a time rub into the flour mixture, keep rubbing until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Place the fruit in a large bowl and sprinkle over the white sugar. Stir well being careful not to break up the fruit. Butter a 9 X 13 inch ovenproof dish. Spoon the fruit mixture into the bottom, then sprinkle the crumble mixture on top. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes until the crumble is browned and the fruit mixture bubbling.
