DAVE'S PICK OF THE WEEK 

My pick this week is the nets of passionfruit we have in our shops. They are super sweet to munch on as a snack, and combined with papaya or berries with a dash of yoghurt, make a fantastic summer breakfast. Passionfruit flush twice a year and it’s happening this week and probably over the next fortnight. These nets of passionfruit are similar to our Imperfect range and thus, far cheaper than the individual pieces of fruit we sell all year around. It can’t last, so grab a net or two this week, they will keep in the fridge for a fortnight or more. The price always skyrockets as this flush ends, which it will do very soon. Enjoy a fruit that is really in season.


DAVE'S MARKET UPDATE

 
FRUIT

First the bad news: our cherries are really getting hammered with this rain; it's looking grim for most mainland cherries this year. Now the good news: lychees are the best eating large fruit this week; very sweet and with a small seed! Find them in all stores this week. These lychees appear much dearer than the supermarket variety, but in fact the small seed means that what you get to consume, per kg, is actually very similar in price.

Papaya, mangoes, bananas and topless pines remain very well supplied and inexpensive. We have both blackberries and Imperfect pink lady apples at a bargain price for the week. Again, nectarines and peaches are both good value. This week, I think it’s the yellow nectarines that are the best eating.


 
VEG
Another very tough week with vegetables this week. The rain is now seriously interfering with harvests across the country. Luckily, there are still lots of snacking tomatoes, telegraph cucumbers and Lebanese cucumbers around; all of which are grown in glasshouses and thus protected from extremes of weather. One very hardy local Sydney basin vegetable that is plentiful this week is rhubarb, it’s a bargain in all Harris Farm stores this week!
