Jazz apples are my pick of the week – they are delicious apples and at the right price at Harris Farm this week. Other fruit lines that I feel are great buying include all citrus, particularly fabulous sweet navel oranges, Murcott mandarins and now blood oranges, which I think make the best orange juice of the year. Passionfruit is cheaper this week, and eating particularly well - they will go up in price again very soon. Berries are still struggling from the massive damage inflicted a couple of weeks ago. Pears and papaya are both excellent value, and avocados continue to be fantastic and affordable.
Yet another tough week in veggies. Fennel remains excellent quality and reasonably priced, as does Kumera, both premium and especially our imperfect line. We have a red hot special on imported Garlic this week. In our view, the now very old season Australian product is not a good option, so we are promoting imports in this line. Apart from that, green caps and beetroot are a bit easier but indeed not a bargain.
