A new variety of Apples is due over the weekend – fresh from the Adelaide Hills, Red Love Apples (pictured below) – the fruit only comes in 67 & 70mm sizes as the red centre colour fades when the fruit gets bigger – stand by your beds for the price $11kg (so similar to the Bravo price when they first started a few years ago) – they will be available tomorrow.

There is an in-store special running until 20th March regarding ‘Sweeter’ Carnarvon Lunchbox Bananas – there is no fixed cost or retail price, the Sweeter Banana Co. are just trying to promote their product – participation is purely down to each individual store – we can get some promotional material to assist the sales push. USA Blood & Cara Cara Oranges are available but only in limited numbers. Limes will be up in price, volumes are light at the moment & because of all the rain in Queensland it will hinder arrivals for the next couple of weeks. Honeydew Melons will be down in price.
