This week as we hold on to the last few days of sunshine, we have an abundance of delicious tropical fruit including Rambutans, Longans and Custard Apples. These are not to be missed, trust us you won’t regret it.
Another of the more unusual fruits we’ve seen is Cotton Candy seedless grapes. They look just like a normal green seedless grape, but the flavour is quite unique – they taste just like fairy floss! These grapes are grown in Robinvale, Northern Victoria. We also have local Thompson green seedless grapes are now in season, and eating really well.
We also have new season Imperial Mandarins from Gayndah, Queensland. The eating quality is only fair, but it’s a start. The eating quality will only improve as the weeks go by.
The stonefruit season has almost drawn to an end, but we do still have plums available for the next few weeks.
Unfortunetly due to the weather, our local fruit is dropping off in quality and supply including cantaloupes, strawberries and blueberries which are all in short supply. Due to the cyclone in Queensland, and the subsequent rain in northern New South Wales, these lines will stay in short supply for the next few months.
Shepard avocados are also now in season. These avocados are grown in North Queensland and have a lovely creamy flavour and the added benefit of not going brown when you cut them.
Local valencia oranges continue to be in short supply, new season navels will be in soon.
Our William pears are fantastic at the moment. These pears have a great flavour and ripen quickly. We also have Buerre Bosc, Red sensation and nashi pears.
Unfortunately our tomatoes have been affected by the weather, and there is very limited supply coming in from Brisbane area, so this week tomatoes are slightly more expensive than usual.Shop in Season
