Kensington pride mangoes from Darwin are at their peak of the season over the next ten days or so. Mangoes have been great eating right from the get-go this season, however this week the eating experience goes to a new level. The fruit we are receiving has been hanging on the trees for a little longer hence the enhanced flavour. From our premium large fruit to the popular imperfect picks line mangoes are a must for this week’s shopping list. There is good value in seedless watermelon and rockmelons, in particular, the smaller size rockmelons which are eating well and are excellent value. Despite being impacted by some inclement weather blueberries remain great eating and great value.
There are some really excellent quality vegetables coming out of the Sydney basin this week. With the property boom in recent years, the product coming out of the Sydney basin is slowly diminishing. However much of the basin product is grown just kilometres from the market so it’s quality and freshness is unrivalled. Kale
, Dutch carrots
, Asian vegetables
, black zucchini
and Lebanese cucumbers
are great quality and value this week. Asparagus
is still available in strong numbers in what is a bumper season and so a real win for the customers. In other vegetable news, there’s a strong supply of broad beans
, globe artichokes and mushrooms
. Recent heavy rainfall in Queensland has disrupted the supply of snow peas, beans and kumera.
