Some inclement weather on the north coast of NSW has slowed down the supply of blueberries. However as soon as the skies clear over Coffs Harbour we can expect the situation to turn around quite quickly. Kensington pride mangoes from Darwin in the Northern Territory continue to gain momentum with supply on the move and seedless watermelon continues to be well supplied and excellent quality.
The beginning of spring heralds the start of the new leafy vegetable crops. Shallots, coriander, continental parsley, English spinach, Dutch carrots and Asian vegetables are all looking healthier in supply and quality. Cabbages, eggplant, corn, brown onions, zucchini, fennel, broccoli, cauliflower and broccolini are all well supplied. Just a reminder this week that all our asparagus is Australian. The quality is excellent and supply will only head north from this point.
This week we have some excellent quality organic broccoli available in stores. Our organic broccoli is actually cheaper than our conventional one this week which rarely happens. Quality is excellent making it the ideal time for those who do not usually shop organic to dabble and see if there's a difference. Capsicums and tomatoes are in a supply gap at present but with the days beginning to lengthen and temperatures heating up, expect this situation to change rapidly.
