Out of principal, no I do not - I sometimes buy grapes when they are very expensive, and also sometimes DO buy one or two stone fruit, but I also find that when they are expensive they are usually hard as a rock and not particularly nice when they ripen or go soft.
This year however, I notice that stone fruit prices are still very high in Perth and in particular apricots...
No. We can't afford to buy fruit, or anything for that matter, that is exorbitantly priced, simply for the sake of it. We have a budget and we adhere to that within reason. If something is very expensive, we don't buy it, and it's as simple as that.
I would only buy a small amount anyway so I suppose the price doesn't matter quite so much. The price of cherries quite often offends me but I still buy a small handful.It's probably better for my health if stone fruit is expensive. LOL
years ago stone fruit mainly peaches could be bought from street stalls outside the orchards
they were well priced and delicious. in those days the Sunday drive and picnic was all the go to stock up on fresh fruit and vegetables.for the coming week
now we hardly ever buy stone fruit from the supermarket as when it ripens it is no good and tastes terrible. that also applies to other fruit and while on the subject, carrots also do not keep and they do not taste like carrots.
I rarely buy stone fruit regardless of price. The stone fruit in the shops is usually hard and lacking in taste. The same can be said of some that is found at markets. If I knew it was going to taste great I would buya small quantity of stone fruit even if it was pricey.
No, I don't ever buy any stone fruits. it's not the price that puts me off, it's worrying if it's going to have any taste any good. Stone fruit just doesn't seem to have the wonderful taste it used too, years ago!
