Kiwis should expect a short supply for leafy greens in the coming weeks, following a hail storm that blasted crops around Pukekohe, Auckland’s main vegetable growing area, RNZ reports. Pukekohe growers are still waiting to see the full extent of the damage which was exacerbated by frost. According to Pukekohe Vegetable Growers’ Association president Kylie Faulkner, the hailstorm damage was widespread, causing grocery shelves to be short of leafy greens like Asian vegetables, lettuce, broccoli, silver beet and spinach.
