The best news is still mangoes. We have a fantastic tray offer in our stores starting this weekend. For a family or to share with friends this a bargain not to be missed. With freight and packaging prices mounting daily growers can’t really ever sell cheaper than this. Stick with the KPs for the best flavour outcome. Also from north Queensland papaya and bananas both represent fantastic value.
Strawberries and blueberries continue to be hammered by rain in the growing areas and so will have a limited shelf life and are best consumed close to date of purchase. Some good Australian peaches and nectarines are starting now and there are tons of imperfect lemons available in the market.
With avocadoes we are now sourcing the fruit from Western Australia and will rely on this source from now until mid-February. You will find the fruit takes longer to ripen and will keep far longer than the Queensland fruit now coming to an end in the shops. The West Australian fruit is far superior to the New Zealand fruit now being sold by some stores
The bargains in vegetables continue. The price on our medley mix tomatoes is something I haven’t seen for many years. Broccolini, spinach, Dutch carrots and fennel are also fantastic value. All cucumbers are inexpensive and excellent quality. Corn remains well priced and this week we are seeing increased supplies of both green Shanghai buk choy and loose beetroot. Lettuce and twin pack cos are also well priced.
