What’s in Season

Date

Fruit

  • Supply Chain Issues/COVID

    Supply Chain issues have impacted fresh produce supply which has flowed into higher prices as well as causing delays in dairy and grocery lines. COVID related staff shortages and shut downs in the agricultural sector have seen sharp rises in prices particularly for some items. These issues are likely to lead to fluctuation in prices for some items depending on what growers/sectors are impacted over the short term.

  • Mangoes

    Honey Golds our pick and good value.

  • Citrus

    Limes and fingerlimes good value. Lemons are a winter Autumn fruit hence as always scarcity reflected in price over the Summer period.

  • Tropical

    Rockmelons scarce but eating well. Watermelon scarce. Pineapples eating well with tops on our pick.

  • Stonefruit

    Apricots and plums eating well. We have sugar plums and a pretty yellow King Midas plum available this week. White nectarines and yellow peaches our pick.

  • Cherries

    Tassie Cherries in season not a plentiful supply but eating well.

  • Berries

    Blackberries good value. Raspberries pretty good value. Not the best time of year for strawberries.
