    Default Fresh produce - what do you buy even when it's expensive?

    What will you buy in the way of fruit/veg even when it's really expensive?

    For me it's lebanese cucumbers and grape tomatoes, as they're a staple of DS's diet. Lebanese cucumbers were almost $9/kg for a while last year, but I still bought them. Sometimes I'll pay $4.50 for a punnet of grape tomatoes.

    One thing I won't pay top dollar for is avocados, even though I LOVE them, I can't bring myself to pay more than $3 for one. Silly I know

    Grape tomatoes. Other things I'll go without when prices are crazy unless we are making something specific (eg passionfruit for a pav)

    Reading this thread make me realise I never buy out of season. If it isn't cheap/in season I either don't get it or get a frozen version.

    I simply cannot do so and stick to my grocery budget.
