I see that kiwis and apples are particularly cheap in Auckland (so kiwis should be cheap in NZ!) and overall it does appear more than afforable to eat plenty of fruit. I suspect in the larger cities in NZ it's easier to buy a greater variety of fruit and lower prices.
After being banned from Australia for 90 years New Zealand grown apples can now be imported into Australia . I haven't come across any New Zealand grown apples so far.
Yes, some of time, you can get Kiwifruit for free as 40% that are picked do not make it to market. Just need to be in the know which once people realise the quanity we eat them in that seems to help. But if not, they are the cheapest fruit to buy.
Apples ah, people who have had both so they like the crunch of the nz apple, a colder climate does produce that.
It is interesting to compare isn't it. I'm jeolous of your ease of getting tropical fruit. You should get a a good mango crop I here. Yum I do hope they get here too.
