On the citrus front, Imperial Mandarins from Gayndah, Queensland are still fantastic to eat and great value. New season navel oranges are tasting great, just in time to ward off the winter coughs and colds. Don’t forget pineapples are also good for those suffering with colds.
Queensland strawberries are coming into season. We are very happy to have Bernie’s Strawberries back in store which are tasting fantastic. The price has also eased, and will continue to do so over the next few weeks.
Persimmons are in season now.
There are plenty of apples around at the moment and every apple is new season. Our William pears are also fantastic at the moment. These pears have a great flavour and ripen quickly. We also have Buerre Bosc pears. Local, seasonal pomegranates are also great at the moment, perfect to add to warming salads and savoury dishes alike.
New season Hass avocados are back and the price is coming down. Organic hass avocados are also cheaper this week.
Local Thompson green seedless grapes are starting to get to the end of season, there is some grapes falling of the bunches, but they still taste great. The crimson grapes are still really sweet and firm.
Blueberries continue to be in really short supply and very expensive and raspberries are going out of season.
Unfortunately our tomatoes have also been affected by the weather, and there is very limited supply coming into the market and prices are extremely high.Shop in Season
