Bobby’s Pick of the Week

Pink Lady Apples

Great buy this week on large size Pink Ladys, Check out this weeks special.

Dan’s Pick of the Week

Asparagus – Spring is here and that means the Australian Asparagus season has now started.  Australian asparagus is available from September to March. Great value at the moment

Beans

Green beans in great supply and great value this week

 

Truss Tomatoes

Vine Ripen Truss Tomatoes are the pick of the week in tomatoes this week, We are seeing an abudance of fresh produce come through the markets at a great price.

 

Mangoes – the Kensington pride mangoes have only been slowly flowing into the markets. This will change in the next week or so as weather heats up. The fruit at the moment is exceptional eating due the extended period the fruit has been hanging on the tree.  The normal time period for a KP mango to reach its full maturity is around 100 days

 

 

Stonefruits

The first supply of Peaches & Nectrines have started to come through the markets, so not long now to you see them come down in price.

Watermelon  

We are starting to see a good supply of Seedless melon come through the markets now, Warmer weather will help supply and price will ease as weeks go on.

Blueberries

Premium Blueberries are the pick of the berries this week 

Weather Affected & Out of Season

Rainfall combined with cooler conditions in the major growing regions has slowed down supply of some veggie lines into the markets, Also demand is high therefore we are seeing short supply of these items.
