Fruit

Strawberries as always will be the first of the soft fruit to appear then Raspberries.

U.K Cherries are always a sign of summer shining through and towards the end of the month we will see small volumes available.

From the orchard, as the stocks of main crop apples and pears from Europe start to diminish we will gradually switch over to Southern Hemisphere fruit. Inevitably the prices will be firm although you will see a vast improvement in quality.

Vegetables

Jersey Royals are always a real treat and along with the first Cornish and Pembroke New Potatoes we will see prices starting ease to more reasonable levels.

Asparagus is in full flow, supplies of this premium product have been good but price is remaining firm. Asparagus is sensitive to low temperatures when growing so any cold snap will have an impact of availability.
