I was about to reply in the midst of the discussion of Andrea Jourdan in the Opening/Closing thread but figured it would start going off topic and unnecessary bloat that thread. So let's keep discussion to JTM and vicinity in here as we have in past years.

Italian blood red oranges have been out for quite a few weeks now, juicy as ever, the deep red ones (Taroco?, I forget the name of the other ones) are available right now as opposed to the sweeter ones.

I had a decent find yesterday at Mondiana, the big containers of "Organic" strawberries from Mexico are priced at only $2. I try to stay away from imported strawberries but figured I'd give them a shot for two loonies, plus Julian Armstrong of Gazette's weekly "best produce buys" claimed that there was currently a decent crop right now. They weren't too bad actually, not too juicy but an OK amount of tarty flavour, they were some of the better imported ones I've had.
