STONE fruit time! Early sea­son Aussie stone fruits are in good sup­ply now and worth a try – white flesh peaches and nec­tarines are quite sweet and good value, and Stan­thorpe apri­cots are now in stock but eat only when fully ripe! Look for the “Zee Sweet” la­bel on your peaches and nec­tarines – it in­di­cates a higher su­crose con­tent in the fruit – eat while firm, not soft, to en­joy the full flavour. North­ern Ter­ri­tory man­goes are in be­tween crop­ping ar­eas this week but sup­ply will ramp up again shortly and bring the quality up and prices down. A flush of late sea­son sweet juicy navel or­anges ar­rived this week and, along with va­len­cias, are ex­cel­lent buy­ing at only $1.99kg. Pick up pre­mium ‘Betty Blues’ blue­ber­ries, na­ture’s su­per­food at only $2.99 pun­net and seed­less mel­ons at only 99c kg. Both North Queens­land red and yel­low pa­paws are avail­able at only $3.99kg. Best vegie buys this week are sweet corn at four for $3, new sea­son onions at $1.49kg, and salad staples toma­toes $1.99kg and large con­ti­nen­tal cu­cum­bers 99c each. There are lots more bar­gains. Check out to­day’s ad in the Dalby Her­ald!
