We are well supplied with very good fruit this week. Cherries and lychees which are both running late this year are starting to come good, however some of our traditional Christmas cherry growers are telling me they wont have fruit for Christmas but will hit their straps around new year. All apricots are magnificent to eat and inexpensive this week. Yellow peaches, white nectarines and West Australian avocadoes are now both at their best and great value. In mangoes, we are seeing a gap in the Kensington Prides as we shift fully into Queensland for our fruit. I am loving the Honeygolds as a substitute!
Very little to excite in vegetables this week. Tomatoes, particularly variations of the snacking varieties and truss remain very good value. Potatoes, onions, twin pack cos and cucumbers are mostly unchanged, we also still have strong supplies of both premium and imperfect zucchinis. There is little movement in our markets this week, with the one bright spot as discussed elsewhere in this newsletter being premium eggplant. It is good quality, and has virtually halved in price since last week, and it is grown locally!
