New season Belgium Conference Pears have started. It may be worth mentioning that Conference Pears are a harder fruit. Store at room temperature but do not wait until the product is too soft as the flesh wil have a woody texture.

Fruit

Due to the delay with the new season crop Bramley Cooking Apples are now plentiful. New Season Northern Hemisphere Apples started with Gala, Granny Smith, and Golden Delicious and Red delicious to follow by Mid-September.

Spanish Melon season is drawing to an end, quality is not the best, and price rises are expected. Brazilian Watermelons have just started but there may be a gap for other varieties.
