Four new video games have gone online to promote fruit consumption among European children as part of the Mr Fruitness campaign.
Cherry crop late
South American cherries will arrive two weeks late, but prospects for the season are good, according to UK importer Norton Folgate. By mid-December a good crop will be available.

The tropical fruit sector has grown just 0.4% year-on-year, with sales slightly over £330m [TNS]. Melon remains Britain's favourite tropical fruit, accounting for one third of sales, but is down 3% in value terms on a year ago.
