Not a lot happening in fruit. As the season progresses we are seeing better quality and cheaper navel oranges. Mandarins are now mostly from southern areas and very good quality. Berry supplies look promising with the number of blueberries and strawberries continuing to increase and weak demand due to school holidays will see prices ease in this category, but not so much with raspberries.
Cold weather all across the nation usually slows up the supply of vegetables and to a lesser extent fruit. Against this school holidays generally reduces demand for our produce so hopefully this week will see the two balance each other out. The big special of the week at Harris Farm is Kestrel potatoes with their distinctive purple eye. Washed potatoes took a massive pounding from the near 50 degree days in growing areas in February and are now just recovering. This will be the first special on this very popular line for us since late last year. Red capsicums this week are as cheap as they are likely to get. Stock up - they keep quite well and they are really a great bargain this week. Spinach, English spinach, beetroot in bunches and kumera are all well supplied and attractively priced. We have an excellent supply of both grape and cherry tomatoes this week and you will find one or the other at fantastic prices in your local Harris Farm Market this week.
