We are slowly transitioning from NZ to BC apples, but the first of the local apples are sparse pickings until the first Sunrise and early Gala’s come on – and not for another 2 weeks or so. We are down to dregs on Braeburn, down to Fuji 80’s but have good supply on Gala 100 with a few pallets of Gala 110 left.
Clamshell cots are a super-hit, with good supply for about 10 more days.
Blueberry season is booming – keep your fingers crossed that our normal late August rains don’t mess with this! All packs in good supply.
Cherries are also hopping – we’re super lucky that two rainstorms in the past 7 days skirted both our primary growers.
Lapins are still coming off the trees, with Staccato still firming up, and Sweethearts will hit the list big-time next week. Once again, we are selling cherries with little margin to move what are very impressive volumes.
We have listed Planeta Verde Fairtrade Avo’s and Grapefruit, but the truck won’t be here until Friday sometime, just so ya’ know.
Stunning cantaloupe at sensational prices!
A wee gap on pineapple, more arriving in a few days – and besides, with all the great local fruit, stunning mangoes, and cantaloupe out there, no one should even notice!
Holy Dinah – 11 plum listings – the beginning of a flood of B.C. varieties will slowly replace the last of our California varieties over the next 10 days or so. Don’t miss out on the last of the Dapple Dandy’s – just a sensational plum!
A small flush of local strawberries, but jump fast – supply is definitely limited.
With glee we kicked another 10 California listings off today, replaced with BC and WA product – just keeping that carbon down!
Destiny Lane carrots are back for a 4 month run. This is our favourite carrot – we should call them “Cawston Sweets”, and in convenient smaller bales!
