The Green Lanes Watermelon Wars

One thing you can certainly get plenty of round here at the moment are watermelons. The 'season' started about 6 weeks ago. Back then, grocers were charging around 89 pence a kilo. But, as the weather has hotted up, so has the competition. The greengrocers in Wood Green Shopping City had them on sale for £2.50 each yesterday, which amounts to around 50 pence a kilo.

This morning, Yasar Halim has been knocking them out at 49 pence a kilo. But, that little place in St Anne's Road is now offering them at FORTY FIVE pence a kilo. How much lower can they go? Watch this space!
