Good lord, Theuns, you have brought sunshine into my frosty day of minus 30!! Thank you for this incredible banquet of food.  I would think that with food like that in your mind and eyesight during the holidays, no need for your own cooking :lol:

I'm curious... is there perhaps some fruits that are highly common in South Africa, less expensive than others?

:)

Yes gogo, But it also depends on the areas of South Africa. In the Western Cape there are lots of fruit farms, especially stone fruits (Peaches, plums, nectarines, cherries) citrus, apples, pears, and persimmons are big, figs, and pomegranate trees also grow easily here and there will be an abundance of strawberries every summer because there are lots of strawberry farms around. Table grapes are not as big as wine grapes, it being the wine region, most grapes are used for juicing. Some tropical fruits are also cheap here, like pineapple, papaya, melons, guava, etc...

 

Fruits are actually cheap, very few that goes for more than R100 a kg, and the quality is always good. (Beef fillet goes for +-R190 a kg)

Theyre so expensive here in MTL... at least in the grocery stores near me... which makes the trudge to ones farther away more appealing.  My mom has lately inspired a surge in fruit eating for me, especially as we're in the cold winter seasons now.  Your huge display of fruits brought out the yearning in me.  Love seeing how they're a great part of your desert making
