Pezzano Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Market Report : 05 – 11 Nov 2018

CAUTION: PRODUCT ALERT

Royal Blue Potatoes, The supply situation on Blue potatoes has become critical with grower still trying to recover from the very wet winter, large potatoes are almost nonexistence with most growers supplying only med to small into merchants. Prices have increased considerably in the last three weeks with no real relief expected until mid to late December. Please keep this in mind when setting your spring menus.

Asparagus, The supply on the local season has improved considerably over the last week with Torbay Asparagus now in good supply. The texture and flavour of this Asparagus is some of the best in Australia, and with prices decreasing as more and more Asparagus hits the market, now is the time to include this on your spring menu. Remember this Asparagus is WA grown and is great raw, in a salad, grilled on the BBQ, steamed, or even lightly pan fried with garlic and olive oil..

Beets, Nothing beats the vibrant colours of our grower direct spring baby Beetroots with Golden, Bullseye and Bulls blood now in good supply. You may order these with confidence, again another great line to add into your spring menu.

LIMES, Supply of Limes continues to be a problem with the Queensland Lime season now coming out of winter fruit, the summer Lime season starts again in January and we expect Lime prices to remain high until late November

Apples, With the approach of summer the W.A supply of Apples always takes a hit, with better than expected sales over winter, supply will this year be low. With no respite expected before we get into our new season fruit in March next year. Supply is not keeping up with demand and prices on all Apples will continue to rise over the coming months. Our only saving grace here is we are expecting a bumper local stone fruit season even if it will be a little late starting due to the cooler start to sprin.
