Written by martins-produce | Posted on 31 May 2024

Vegetables

Asparagus – Glamorous Kimberley has started.

Beans – We sent out KBs on Thursday and will continue to use them next week stringless get picked. Quality is great but slightly more expensive.

Capsicum – Reds and Yellows are still an issue with supply and price. Greens seem to be OK at the moment.

Garlic – Keep stock levels low. Supply is short and agents are trying to source from E/S and import which are up to 6 months old.

Pumpkin – Jap and Butternut quality and price is down, perfect for winter sales.

Snows/Snaps – Supply and quality has improves but prices haven’t changed.

Tomatoes – Quality is poor at the moment as only Carnarvon is sending fruit at the moment. E/S might come in next week.

Pre-Packed Corn is going to increase in price starting Monday.

Fruit

Cherries – USA cherries are available and nice in 5kg boxes.

Lemons – QLD still has the best fruit but we have some WA fruit coming next week. We will send some out if the quality is good enough.

Mandarins – Clementines are filling a majority of the markets. We can get some nice Moora imperials which are nicer but more expensive. We will be sending imperial unless you specify clementines on your order.

Melons – Kununurra Rockmelon and Honeydew are coming in next week but not much difference in price.

Pears – Packham Prices have been high lately and aren’t coming down soon but supply levels are ok.

Pomegranates – Nice local trays are selling well.

Watermelon – Nice Kununurra fruit should come down in price next week. 

Strawberries – Local Wanneroo fruit is in good supply now, hopefully the long awaited rain we are getting will not have an impact.
