According to my spreadsheet (I am really sad!!), I spend around £50 a month on fresh fruit and veg. Most of that is actually fruit, though with rising costs, I have taken stock at what I get for the price I’m paying, and it is not value for money!
Growing up, things like melons, pineapples, kiwi, peaches, nectarines, seedless grapes, raspberries and strawberries were all summer fruit, but now we can get them all year round.  Oranges can be a trigger for migraine for me, recent bananas have been abysmal, we are paying 60p for a single apple and 75p for a pear, but I was invited to go and pick apricots from a neighbour’s tree though sadly many rotted in the fruit bowl.

I prefer soft fruit to fiddling around with stones and pips, so my five favourites would be:
Seedless grapes and
Honeydew/Galia melon.

Buying frozen fruit though, I would go for cherries, pineapple and mango.
Tinned choices would be pineapple, apricots, peaches, pears, and gooseberries.

I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Fruit prices are so exorbitant. My husband was watching a show regarding inflation, and basic foods items have risen 13% since last year 🙄

    I just bought “LemonDrop” melons. It looked like a yellow tinted cantaloupe from the skin but inside it was like a honeydew melon – all greenish white. The flavor however is sweet with a tangy aftertaste like lemonade! We had to pay $3.99 but the second one was only $1 so it came out to $2.50 each which was fine because they are really big! My favorites are: Cherries, Blueberries, Raspberries, Apples and Apricots. I happen to have all of these currently in the refrigerator along with a mango for Sparky… With the price of gasoline so high I’m guessing that some are having to decide on gas for the car or fresh fruit and veggies…

  3. Nice list Di! It’s the same everywhere and what the frilly is with the bananas? I used to buy 2-3 (that’s all I can eat in a week), and get them a bit green so they’d last out the time. Now? I get them and they’re rotted before three days are gone. Awful. That lemonade melon sounds a treat! I wonder if they get them in the USA too? Would be a really scrumptious treat it sounds like!

    • I usually buy still green bananas but recently they have been woody and rotted from the inside. The last ones I bought were still green, but in 2 days the skins were black and I threw them away as they were mushy an horrible inside. I haven’t bought any since. In fact, I have cut down a lot on my fruit since I realised just how much I was spending on it a month!

  4. Thanks for sharing your favourites.
