FIJI BANANA TRADE. PERIOD OF SHORT SUPPLIES AND HIGH PRICES. AUCKLAND, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
' FIJI BANANA TRADE. PERIOD OF SHORT SUP PLIES AND HIGH PRICES. Auckland, Friday. An auctioneer with a large island business states that con signments of bananas cannot be expected from Fiji fo£ eight months. Tonga is shipping less fruit this year. Cook Islands are not able to supply the extra demand, and consequently prices will, be higher than for the past 20 years. Any fruit arriving during the winter months will probably be shipped to Sydney,, where there is a better market for it. These conclusions are based on letters from growers. One settler's losses in bananas and cane are estimated at £6000. In the Rewa district the damage by the recent hurricane is esti mated at between £5000 and £6000.
