Smashing News As Avocado Prices Expected To Fall In Coming Weeks

Avocado prices are expected to fall in coming weeks, as the Queensland harvest begins.

Avocados have reached highs of up to $7 a fruit recently, following a shortage. This is partly due to increased demand and storms in New Zealand.

However, thankfully for avo toast lovers, the harvesting of the north Queensland avocados crops will begin in mid-Feb.

Avocado producers in Australia have struggled to keep up with demand, John Tyras, CEO of Avocados Australia told the ABC:

"What we're finding is every year is this insatiable appetite for avocados right around the country and we just struggle at this time of the year," he says.
