Market Report - 11th November 2010

All categories of tomatoes are remaining firm in price.

Cherry tomatoes are more reasonable on the purse and of good quality while the egg shaped Roma tomatoes are scarce and expensive.

Expect avocados to become harder to find leading up to Christmas, with some now being imported from New Zealand, although they tend to brown quickly once cut.

Iceberg lettuce has been expensive but another salad line, cucumbers, are at last starting to fall in price, especially the continental variety.

Bananas are in reasonable supply, of good quality and the price is fair.

Apples and pears remain plentiful with Western Australian pink lady apples and Packham pears the best choice, despite being ugly.

Grapes are still hit and miss in quality, as is stonefruit with the Victorian and Stanthorpe grown fruit now producing a nice crop.

There has been a excellent papaw season this year, with the fruit still cheap and tasty.

Rockmelons and watermelons are of quality although their prices remains firm.

Look for the last of the Murcott mandarins this week but for some quality citrus, try the navels and valencia oranges that have recently come onto the Market.
