Over the last few weeks, green beans coming down from Queensland have been of poor quality because of the amount of rain they’ve had up there. Apparently the rain has eased, and the quality has improved.
Local strawberries have also had to deal with rain, followed by warm and humid conditions. These weather patterns are a recipe for poor quality, and a shorter shelf life. So the advice from the grower is to eat the strawberries within a day or so of getting them.
The Northern Territory mango season is coming to an end. My supplier is expecting a final shipment from Katherine, early next week. After the Northern Territory mangoes finish, it shouldn’t be too long before the Queensland ones begin.
The Queensland watermelon season began a couple of weeks ago. They’re cutting quite nicely, so time to begin supplying them again.
Please also note, that all apples are picked in autumn, so the apples that are currently being supplied have been in storage for quite some time now. As it gets later and later in the season, the quality deteriorates. Best to stick with Pink Lady or Granny Smith apples at this time of the year. These apples are lower in sugar, and keep better for longer.
