It never used to be. Over the last decade the shops have become really dodgy. They keep fruit and vegetables in storage for (literally) months before it makes it to the shelves – and so it is treated with so much rubbish it no longer tastes like fruit.
Because it’s been a gradual process, only Australians who have spent time elsewhere – like in Europe – notice things have changed. There’s so much ‘Australia has the greatest food’ propaganda around that nobody wants to believe otherwise.
We grow some of our own fruit these days. It’s amazing how different it is.

But it's still nowhere near as bad as in Asia!

Sorry to move this even further off-topic!!

The fruit and veg isn't so bad in Melbourne, we've had some gorgeous mangoes and pineapple mmmmm... You should try the fruit & veg from Robinsons in the Isle of Man, what a joke!
Anyway, Australia is .... gorgeous sunshine, beaches and blueberry wine
