In Vegetable and Salad lines;

  • Potatoes are in short supply and very expensive.

The best value vegetable and salad items are;

  • Qld Pumpkin

  • Celery
  • Leeks
  • Regular Tomatoes
  • Asian Vegetables

In Fruit;

  • Pink Lady, Gala, Fuji, Red Delicious and Granny Smith Apples are all available and good. Store apples covered in the fridge to keep them crisp.
  • Packham Pears are still available and very good. Beurre Bosc and Nashi Pears have finished for this season.
  • Navel Oranges are very good but supply is light due to the inland flooding. We will have some more Afourer Mandarins this week but only in larger fruit. Blood Oranges are still very good as are Lemons and Limes. Imperial Mandarins and Tangelos have finished.

  • USA Grapes have started and we will have some Red Seedless grapes which appear to be the best.
  • Mangoes are nice but supply is still light.
  • The cooler weather is slowing up the stone fruit so we need to wait a bit longer for some nice fruit.
  • Pineapples and Red Papaya are excellent.
  • Watermelons, Rockmelons and Honeydew Melons are all very good, although Rockmelons are larger than normal and more expensive.
  • Passionfruit is unavailable at the moment.
