In mangoes, we have new season Honey Golds this week. Our Honey Golds are currently being harvested from Katherine in the Northern Territory and are one of my favourite mangoes. Our imperfect mango range will also be the Honey Golds this week. The fruit is slightly misshapen and has some branch rub mark but rest assured, it eats perfectly. Kensington Prides, R2E2’s and Calypso trays are all on offer this week for just $19.99 a tray! This week we see a well-supplied market on nectarines with prices easing daily. Peaches are increasing in supply and are also eating well, the white peaches are the stand out in my opinion. The start of the Australian grape season is always well received especially after having to endure the imported product throughout the winter. This week we have an excellent opportunity to push drinking coconuts. Arriving fresh into our DC, drinking coconuts are on offer at great value this week. Lychee volumes are also on the increase with the better varieties just days away. The market will continue to ease over the next few days. Cherries are starting to get into some better varieties - the earlier soft varieties are nearly done as we move into the harder crunchy fruit. Try our punnet cherries which are fantastic quality and great value.
The market offers plenty of opportunities in veg this week. All cucumber varieties are still in abundance. This week the punnet baby cucumbers are especially good at prices only experienced a handful of times a year. Beautifully sweet, these baby cucumbers are the perfect addition to salads or the school lunch box. Other lines that are well supplied include Dutch carrots, kumera, (in particular imperfect kumera), lettuce, asparagus, zucchini, sugar snaps, snow peas, kale, spinach, cherry tomatoes and grape tomatoes.
