Severe hail storms over South Africa last week have severely damaged crops, just look at that picture of the fruits that got battered from huge frozen ice balls!!!
We won’t instantly see an issue but over the coming weeks there could be some disruption to supply/prices as the crop is starting to be picked and transported.
Just like the Conference pear the demands on Bramley apples is high which is causing some concern as the stored fruit is starting to run dry.
We often forget but there is only one crop of UK Bramley apples which are picked in Autumn so at this time of year the fruit has been sat in store all this time.
Supply is still ok but prices are on the rise watch out.
Green Beans **WATCH OUT**
The green bean world is in a severe state at the moment as supply is desperately short out of Kenya and Guatemala.
Deep heat has crippled growth followed by heavy rains which has made the perfect breeding ground for a bacterial infection which is literally causing severe crop failure!!!
Supply is very tight so please be warned
