Fruit prices continue to be very reasonably priced and basically unaltered from last week.
Mandarines are the mainstay of fruit sales at the moment. Our imperials are all now southern fruit and juicy again though this year they are mostly quite small. For a larger piece of fruit, I would recommend the Royal Murcott variety.
Bananas continue to be very well supplied as are both colours of kiwi, all pears and apples. Lemons are remaining extremely cheap and Papaya is not expensive and eating fantastically.
For something different this week try our lunchbox sized Kanzi apples. They are smaller fruit but ideally sized for the kids to take to school. There has been some transport issues but all stores will have them by the weekend.
Another tough week, however there are real signs of prices easing next week.
At last we can genuinely see veg prices next week dropping by 10% and in some products as much as 20% next week. This week is still however very tough.
Kestrel potatoes or washed, smaller sizes are the bargain of the week. One or the other of these will be on special, are great quality and far cheaper than they have been in all stores in both States this week.
Imported garlic has also dramatically eased in price and around half or less than last week’s price. The only other bargain in New South Wales this week is our Imperfect Kumera.
Looking forward to better times next week!
