Perth’s latest burst of hot weather will severely affect most crops. Most young herbs will be burnt which means in several weeks the shortage will really hit home. Watermelon, Rockmelon, Eggfruit, Zucchini, Grape Tomatoes, Cherry Tomatoes, Chillies, English Spinach and Spring Onions will be smashed and expect Perth prices to escalate, not only on our lines but a whole range of others as well. The shortage will be filled by stock from the Eastern States, with the freight adding extra cost.
