This is what I bought at my corner shop yesterday.
1 box of 15 naartjies (mandarins) R10.99
1 box of 16 guavas R10.99
1 box of 16 avocado pears R25.99
1 box of 13 papinos R12.99
TOTAL = ZAR 60.96 (US$8.31 and Euro 5.31) for all that lovely fresh fruit!
South Africans don't generally realise how lucky we are to have such wonderful local produce so readily available, and so cheaply.
Right now avocado pears (high in essential fats), citrus and guavas (both high in vitamin C) are in season - marvellous, as that's just what one's body needs to survive winter!
