Thompson Seedless Grapes
The Thompson seedless grape variety are now available in both 500g or 1kg bags. They are sweet, juicy and most importantly “seedless”. Thompson Seedless grapes are also called sultana grapes as a large majority of sultanas are actually dried Thompson Seedless grapes.
This time of the year is not the greatest time for apples. The new season varieties like the Royal Gala are just starting, and although they are just off the tree, they tend to go a bit “mealy” or “floury” if left in the fruit bowl in hot weather. Probably better to store them in the fridge.
There are no new season pink lady apples out yet, they’re not out for at least another six weeks. The apple grower I had been getting my pink ladys from for the last sixteen years stopped going to the new Epping Market at the end of last year, which was quite devastating, as his pink lady apples were very fresh and crisp even late in the season.
The good news is, as of last Thursday, I can again get his apples. So, if you’ve been dissapointed with the quality of them over the past two weeks, they will be much better from now on.
Have a great week!
