    Blueberries though I won't pay more than $5
    Cucumbers

    Actually, I don't even know when certain things are out of season.

    Cherry tomatoes and bananas, but I still wouldn't buy those if they weren't Australian produce.
    Sometimes other things, but I usually stick to what's in season/cheap.

    I'll buy anything I need, whether it be in or out of season. I must admit though, I'm not very observant of the prices and often just grab things without looking at the price.

    Bananas. They will always be in my trolley, no matter what the cost.

    Remember a few years back there was a real shortage of them due to some storms in QLD (I think)? They went up to a ridiculous price - around $15 a kilo from memory.

    I still had bananas in my trolley then! I don't eat many of them but they are kind of a staple for me

    Tomatoes are another one. We go through a kilo and a half a week, and I get the hydroponic truss variety. I'll buy those year round, and they can be expensive. Love it when my Summer veggie patch kicks in though - lots of fresh, REAL TASTING tomatoes!

    Everything.

    I've had to work so hard to make my kids less fussy and to try new foods that even if something is super expensive but they love it, I'll buy it.

    Avocado....I love it!. Brocoli, but I will only buy a little bit. I will still buy something but will weigh it before buying.

    I love cherries but refuse to buy too many when expensive, just a handful.

    Lebanese cucumbers - My DD takes one per day to school for fruit break. They are the only fruit / veg she will eat at school so I buy them every week regardless of the price. When they were crazily expensive last year I still got them, but only got five per week for her instead of buying for the whole family.

    All other fruit and veg I pretty well only buy when it is in season.

    We don't go off price (we already spend way too much to care) so we just ask the grocer, who we are on first name basis with now, what isn't worth getting. For example he might tell us this lot of oranges are a bit sour etc. so we go off quality

    Sugar bananas I can't live without them
    Fresh figs

    I love berries but I can't bring myself to pay some of the crazy prices when not in season. In winter I just get the frozen organic berries.

    I'm over avocados at the moment but I will pay stupid amounts for them because DS loves it for breakfast and it's hard to get him to eat breakfast.
