In fruit there is plenty of value in limes, papaya and seedless melon. The Darwin mango season is in full swing with nearly one million trays leaving Darwin in the past fortnight. The result is fantastic value across the whole range. We have great prices on small and large trays available in all stores. The fruit is eating exceptionally well. When choosing fruit look for fruit that is well rounded with that aroma we have come to love in mangoes. Bananas have really gone through the roof this week. Colder than average temperatures in far North Queensland has had a dramatic effect on the size of the bunches that the trees are producing thus significantly affecting the volumes of fruit. How long this will last is not clear but I suspect we are at the wrong time of the year for it to last for any significant period. This week Imperfect Picks are taking on a new dimension with the addition of Imperfect Kensington Pride mangoes. The presence of the tree and wind rub does in no way detract from what is still a wonderfully sweet and juicy fruit. The other highlight in the imperfect picks range are Imperfect Packham pears. This fruit is every bit as juicy and sweet then the far more expensive premium Packhams.
Hass avocados are on special this week at all Harris Farm Markets stores at a red hot 99 cents each. These avocados are deliciously creamy with that nutty flavour we have come to love. Telegraph cucumbers are also on a tremendous special at 3 for $2.00. The cucumbers are coming from the south of Australia the quality and flavour makes them the perfect accompaniment for the seasonal salad. In market there is some good value to be had this week in snow peas, celery, peas, cos lettuce, rhubarb, eggplant, broccoli and zucchini.
