Supplies of Pink Lady apples to the UK have been hit by flooding in France and a shortfall in Australia. The French crop should reach initial forecasts but is not due to arrive until the beginning of November. The Australian crop is thought to be 40% down. This will lead to a period of lower supply until the Spain and France come on line. Sales of Pink Lady have risen by around 50% each year since it arrived in the UK. {{MARKET EDGE }}
