    This exactly. The difference is small price wise but the quality is much better.

    It's not that organic is expensive, it's that non organic and GMO is really cheap.

    Yeah, nah. Not always that straightforward.

    Plus, totally off topic.

    Plus plus, organic is usually grown in sh1t
    Thank you! I've seen this before and love it! It takes away my guilt for not buying organic

    What does that have to do with being mistakenly overcharged for nectarines?

    The problem is too when you buy fruit from O/S and it tastes awful is you can turn your kids off it. I did that with cherries once and now DD2 won't eat them even when they are in season and taste great.

    Yes, I was just coming back to write this.
    And, if I HAD bought organic today, I still would have been overcharged and it would have even more ludicrously expensive.

    So yeah, nothing to do with organic/ non organic produce.

    Glad you got it sorted I buy nectarines from Coles at the moment and yes they are imported but they are still delicious! I paid $3 for a passionfruit the other day because I wanted some with my fruit salad
