False advertising

We stopped at Roxburgh for fruit on the way home from Millers Flat yesterday but sadly it didn’t live up to the promises on the boxes.



The peaches are only just ripening, the nectarines and apricots are rock hard  and none of the fruit is tasty, yummy or sweet.

It’s particularly disappointing because for the last two weeks we’ve been enjoying stone fruit in Argentina which looked good and tasted even better – sweet and juicy just as it should be.

  2. I can buy a box that size for about $3.00 in the Wairarapa and it’s ready to eat. It’s usually that cheap as it has to be eaten now- never a problem at my place!

    I suspect those prices are marked up for the tourist season!
