I look at most of it and start worrying about the rights and wrongs of it all, unsure whether by buying a mango I am committing an ethical faux pas. The exotic fruit is sourced from farms or workers' co-operatives (visited personally by buyers), which operate good working conditions, with safe equipment, accountable pay systems and sickness benefits.
Their Christmas fruit basket, which feeds large numbers, includes golden pineapple, mangoes and physalis, and is packed in a canvas-lined wicker basket (A?39.50).


Not any more, however, given the spending downturn, which could result in disaster for farmers and workers. When customers curb their extravagance, it is exotics, with the exception of bananas, that are an early victim of cuts. The complexity of the supply chain means it is hard to track the overuse of pesticides – although the Government's Pesticide Residue Committee tests random samples from retailers, this does not happen enough.
Results rarely show residues of chemicals outside "safe" levels, although numbers can be alarming.


Last year, 45 out of 48 samples of pineapple from major retailers contained pesticide residue, albeit at "safe" levels. So, unless you are buying tropical fruit with the Fairtrade logo (see Shopping Basket, right), it is better to go to one of the smaller chains which offer a guarantee of ethical trading on all their fruit and discourage the supermarket bullies.
