I am finding the red grapes a bit better than the whites. Always, at this time of the year, the whites start to be not as crunchy and the reds come into their own. For apples, the Galas are still terrific but we now have most varieties available in new season fruit. The Pinks are still old season and I don’t really think the Fuji's are a good option just yet; both Kanzi's and Jazz are available and very good. Still lots of bananas; a few days to go on those fantastic eating KP mangoes from Mildura and this an excellent week for Mangosteens. Raspberries are the pick of the berries. Peaches and nectarines are right at the end of their run and in plums, the September Candys, are the best option.
For the first time in several weeks we have a good selection of reasonably priced quality vegetables. Leading the charge is broccoli around half the price it was last week. We have some well priced asparagus as well, the Australian product which is approaching the end of its season being dearer than the imports. Red washed potatoes are good and cheap; Kumera is also very cheap and very good. Beans and caulies have both eased in price and, between prepacks and loose options with mushrooms, there are bargains to be had. There is a very good line of Imperfect zucchini in the stores as well. Hopefully, we are returning to normal with the supply of vegetables.
