    How did we end up paying $2 or more each before Covid?

    • +2

      There were less houses available then /s

    • -1

      Your sentence makes zero sense. :s

    • +2

      Restaurants were open.
      Hotels were open

      • I got that, assuming costs of production don't fluctuate too much , farmers were making a killing.

        • +7

          Supply and demand.

          Demand went down. Supply stayed the same.

          Basic economics.

          • @PainToad: Yes, when they are in trouble (drought/floods) we bail them out, also very basic

          Production price up cos no backpackers to pick for $5 an hour.

        • More trees have been plannted and we have had a good year for crops so there are 233% more avocados in the market. But the same number of people are buying avocados so there are too many to sell

          farmers were making a killing.

          You're assuming that they are even making money selling them at this price, they aren't.
          Farming also has high and low income years so farmers might make a lot one year, not much or lose money the second year but have an average income that's average for all the work they do.

          When harvesting and marketing costs are added to production costs, the total per-acre cost increases to $3,797. This translates into a cost of $0.23 per pound to produce, harvest, and market avocados
          https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/publication/FE837

          So assuming that growing costs are the same in America and Australia farmers have a cost of about 70 cents per kg of avocado

    • some one decided to give to people instate dimming in rubbish bin , it may cost more than 4 cent to stack up in shelf

    Great! For $20, you get 500 avocados AND a watermelon!

    • +6

      Or buy 3 and pay cash, save 2c!

    • +4

      Does the cashier physically sit there and count out 500 avos at the checkout? I'm coming back for a refund if there is a miss count!!

    • That's alot of guac

  • +22

    500 avocados + 1 watermelon for $20 is a steal!!!

      What a time to be alive…

    No watermelons left. The promotion started yesterday.

    Wow, what happens with the avocado price?? It's used to be $2 ea.

    • +3

      Probs no exports or too good a season.

      • +41

        No/little cafes open for selling smashed avo

      • +2

        Shipping is terrible at the moment, so good luck getting those avocados exported and other food imported. Instead of a month its taking almost double as long & shipping prices have multiplied 4-5 times over in the last 2 years.. wouldnt surprise me if thats affecting the avocado chain.

        • We do import avocado every year as well

    • +2

      Good growing season & there is a glut of some produce. Record year for pulses, rice, etc unlike 2020. Total value of farm exports is high because the price of beef & other meats is high.

      • -5

        Good growing season

        So much for the 'climate emergency' eh?

        • Yeah it’s good living in a greenhouse /s

    • +1

      Good season and avocado is a tree that takes a few years to bear fruit, so people who planted them a few years ago when prices were high, are now seeing their crops.

      Basically massive oversupply, but it's likely to go back up in the future, but not as high as it once was.

    • More trees have been plannted and we have had a good year for crops so there are 233% more avocados in the market. But the same number of people are buying avocados so there are too many to sell

      just don't smash the avocados, that's how you end up renting for eternity

    • don't put it on your toasts then you should be fine

      Willing to pay 8 cents for his avocados.

      • +2

        Spend 30 dollars and you will get his juice

        • +11

          Wonder whether the same could/would be said if it was a female?

          • @FlatulentFrank: Probably worse

          • +4

            @FlatulentFrank: We could, but whoever said it would be negged and called a creep. That said the guy is cute :)

          • +1

            @FlatulentFrank: Don't know if it would be said but it should be said. Humour is good and fear of offending or being seen as inappropriate takes so much humour away. "I'd pay 8 cents for her avocados"… I'd upvote that for the laugh.

          • @FlatulentFrank: Some comments will be same, others will be different, instead of commenting on his avocados, it'd be her watermelons.

            But the comments regarding getting his/her juice will remain.

    This almost made me relocate to QLD from NSW (SYDNEY) ;)

  • $1.49 for Bananas on the 12th ?

    They had spend $20 and get a 10kg box of Avo's on the 12th …

    like WTF

    that's crazy prices …. and NO LOCKDOWNS ! :(

    mumbles stupid Melbournians can't isolate and have to protest mmmm

  • Any idea why avo are so cheap but woollies ones are still expensive

    • +1

      because you're not a thrifty shopper

    • +1

      Because Woolies are a joke that don't respect their shoppers' dollar.

    • Duopoly

    • +2

      Probably because Woolies has a national supply chain at much larger scale, whereas this guy owns one shop and managed to buy a van load of avos cheap from a farmer who had way too many and was going to feed them to his pigs.

    • The Woolies ones are huge though at my store.

    • Because buying, storing, distributing produce and running stores to sell you an avocado is expensive.

  • +1

    And people were having a go at those taking $1 for the "avo club deal". With shipping, thats many many times more expensive than this. Too bad its not everywhere.

  • In your face Tim Gurner. Now I can afford avo on toast AND buy a house.

  • -1

    Something something about Millennials, today's wages and economy, buying houses and wasting money on avocado toast.

  • Skip the avo on the toast and save towards your first home deposit…

    Avo toast overrated, avo smoothies are where it's at.

    I'm so sorry the loss. No one can live at 4 cents each.

    W/O sounding loony, I'm wondering about the USA Monsanto claiming ownership to "SEEDS" (not joking).

    Are farmers being shut out of natural growing?

    • W/O sounding loony, I'm wondering about the USA Monsanto claiming ownership to "SEEDS" (not joking).

      You don't sound loony, just uninformed.
      Monsanto don't own all seeds, they create specific varieties and sell those specific varieties that they created. You are still free to grow your own fruit using your own supplies if you wish.

      Are farmers being shut out of natural growing?

      No.

      • No.

        It is getting harder though.

        Imagine you are a farmer who uses non Monsanto seeds but the farm next to you uses Monsanto seeds.

        It is unavoidable that some of the Monsanto seeds will make it onto your farm.
        You might then collect and plant those Monsanto seeds.
        That can get you in trouble with Monsanto.

        • -1

          It is getting harder though.

          Is it? Are you a farmer or is this something you read about on the Internet one time?

          • @1st-Amendment: Would you like me to get farmers I know to make accounts and provide evidence to the 1st-Amendment's ozbargain court of law?

            Feel free to do your own research, here is a starting point.

            numerous law suits that Monsanto had brought against farmers and found some 142 patent infringement suits against 410 farmers and 56 small businesses in more than 27 states. In total the firm has won more than $23m from its targets, the report said.
            https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/feb/12/monsanto...

            The court’s nine justices unanimously ruled on Oct. 9 that farmers cannot save seeds for replanting if the seeds are harvested from Monsanto’s patented Roundup Ready soybeans, which are genetically engineered to withstand direct application of the company’s Roundup herbicide.
            https://theconversation.com/monsanto-wins-7-7b-lawsuit-in-br...

            In a decision released the following March, Justice MacKay found for Monsanto. He concluded that none of the sources suggested by Mr. Schmeiser could reasonably explain the concentration or extent of Roundup Ready canola on his fields. More importantly for the broader agricultural community, the Court ruled that Monsanto’s patent was valid and infringed. Even though the patent was directed to modified genes and cells which required sophisticated laboratory techniques to create, a person who did no more than plant and cultivate a patented seed would infringe. The trial decision was upheld by the Federal Court of Appeal in 2002, and later by the Supreme Court of Canada in a 5-4 decision released in 2004. None of the courts made an express finding as to the source of the seed that grew to plants in Mr. Schmeiser’s test area in 1997.

              @spaceflight: So you read it on the internet then. You should be angry about what you read on the internet, that's what they want you to be…

              • @1st-Amendment: Which part of

                Would you like me to get farmers I know

                makes you think I only read it on the internet?

                • @spaceflight:

                  makes you think I only read it on the internet?

                  Because that's the only evidence you've provided so far. And since each case was farmers using Monsanto products without paying for them, it doesn't really support your claim of "farmers being shut out of natural growing"

                  If you use Monsanto products, then you should pay for them. The law is pretty clear on how that works.

    Bargain for the locals. Coco's has 9c regularly, only 5c once I remember.

  • thank you!

  • +1

    I'm jealous! QLD bargainers, you should freeze all of the ones you can't use and make Sinh To Bo (Avo + milk + sweetened condensed milk) in the summer. You're welcome!

  • Possibly they have excess stock and could even be losing money on them, but it is a classic marketing tactic, you heavily discount one item to get people in the door and there is a good chance they buy other items at full price while they are there (if you are NOT an ozbargainer that is). The tactic works well and is a short term financial sacrifice that pays off longer term in most cases.

  • Anyone came here bcs of the picture (cute man)

  • Not everything has been bad with COVID.

    I have liked the cheaper Avocados and Lobsters.

    Damn right they should be selling them to us locally, rather than sending overseas.

  • Well Cocos Annerley in BNE have done it, avocados are 1c each for today only.. already got enough but wow.
