Extended warm weather conditions in Far North Queensland has seen a considerable spike in banana supply. Strong volumes have been making their way down the highway for the last two weeks resulting in an easing of the market. The quality of fruit is excellent and the eating quality is especially good. Time to put bananas back on the shopping list.
For something a little different this week, try our Cara Cara navel oranges. Cara Cara’s are red-fleshed navel orange from the Riverina district in NSW. Cara Cara oranges are generally medium sized, very sweet and low in acidity making them kid-friendly.
Good news continues on berries this week. Strong volumes of blueberries have led to a decent drop in Blueberries market. The extra volumes have been created by fantastic growing conditions and the overlapping of different growing districts. Value is only matched by the quality which is exceptional. Dry conditions in south east Queensland is keeping strawberry volumes flowing into the markets. It has been many years since we have seen a season uninterrupted by weather and the result is pristine quality. For unforgettable berry experience, try our premium range of strawberries and blueberries.
