01 Mar WHAT’S IN SEASON NOW!
Avocado varieties are changing from HASS to Shepard (far North QLD). Shepard Avocados do not turn black when ripening. Rather, they stay green and start to go soft at the stem end. We say goodbye to the iconic Kensington Pride until next year but Mangoes are still available with the beautiful and colourful Kiett variety.
After the extreme heat of recent weeks followed by rain, most crops have been affected with my favourite grower’s cherry tomatoes shrivelling on the vine. We need to wait until mid to late March before her production is back to normal.
