Happy Easter! Please note, we’re closed for deliveries on Good Friday and Easter Monday.
Waiheke orders will be delivered on Sunday instead.
- Papple – This NZ bred pear hybrid is noted for having the same crisp, juicy texture as nashi pears but a taste more like European pears, with sweeter and more complex flavours than Asian varieties. They were well received by the customers that tried them last season and are now available for the next 2-3 weeks.
- Feijoas – Quality and size are improving so now is a good time to give them a look, season typically runs until mid June.
- Chestnuts – Now available, season runs until mid to late June.
- Orange Squash – Now available, like a buttercup but orange!
- Purple & Yellow Table Carrots – Limited quantities beginning to arrive.
- Spaghetti Squash – Now available, season runs approx. 4 months.
- Palermo Long Capsicum – Sweeter than a normal capsicum, and what makes them even sweeter is they’re currently a lot cheaper than a regular bell pepper. Give them a go!
- Celeriac – Price has eased and is set to fall further, get it on your Autumn menu now!
- Spinach – Price has eased considerably with improved supply.
- Pears – Now plenty of well priced green Packham, brown Beurre Bosc & Nashi pears available, good option for keeping your Autumn menu food costs under control.
- Iceberg Lettuce – Price is well back from the highs of the last fortnight.
- Ambrosia Apples – Later in the week.
- Gold Kiwifruit – Later in the week.
End of Season
- Stone Fruit – Yellow peach and nectarine have finished. Gold peaches are near the end as well but we should see another week. Peacherines are in the mix now and will be the last cab off the rank, typically winding up mid April but do note, they are an expensive option. Plums will also be around until mid April.
- Baby Sweetcorn – Last week of the season.
- Green Veg – The situation remains fairly grim across the majority of fresh green lines, with steep pricing and mixed quality looking to be the status quo for the remainder of the month. This week broccoli is offering the best value but still couldn’t be regarded as cheap.
- Melons – The domestic season is coming to a finish with only a few days to go before we switch to Aussie supply. Do note watermelon price will jump when we switch to imports.
- Small Vine Tomatoes – Both red and yellow are currently in short supply and unfortunately may be unavailable some days.
- Parsnip – $3.99/kg
- Red and Green Chilli – $14.95/kg
