FRUIT UPDATE

FRUIT UPDATE:
Today was a full on PYO day with the first customers hitting the trees at 7am sharp!
From then on it was a continual stream of PYOers racing up and down ladders to get their haul. :)
As a result of such an influx, PYO Moorparks are now completely picked out but we still have some PYO Stephens Favourite available for tomorrow.
Sorry to anyone who missed out on PYO Moorparks this season but there are still Moorparks available at other Stalls in the Valley so you will still be able to get your Moorpark fix!

After tomorrow all PYO apricots will be finished for the season but we will still have apricots available on the Stall for another week or so. :)
Shiro plums are now available on the Stall and Billington plums are just a few days away.
Our first variety of PYO Nectarines are still on track to start on Wednesday.

Will keep you posted! :)

PYO starts tomorrow!!!!

Remember boys and girls that PYO Stephens Favourite and PYO Moorparks start tomorrow!
The weather forecast saw the odd chance shower but it certainly won’t amount to anything.

Remember to bring your own shopping bags, buckets, containers, boxes, etc.
Don’t worry if you forget as we have plastic bags available 😊
Due to poor pollination conditions during the springtime, our Moorpark crop is lighter than we would have liked 😳
These conditions affected apricot crops throughout the district but even if you can’t get Moorparks from us, we can send you in the right direction to someone who will be able to supply you 😊

PYO nectarines should be ready to roll around Wednesday.
Shiro plums are now available on the Stall and Billington plums….(our first red plum of the Season) will be ready around Wednesday.
The Stall is stocked with a range of apricots for all your apricot related needs 😎

If you have a fruit query, txt my sister Ruby on 027 288 6090. Remember we are open from 7am-9pm …7 days a week.

Billington plums….(our first red plum of the Season) will be ready hopefully halfway through next week.
Shiro plums will also be on the Stall this weekend. These plums have yellow skin and yellow flesh and are lovely for eating and making jam.
We also have boxed Peeka on the Stall – these are a delicious apricot with a tiny stone….great for bottling, freezing & eating.

PYO Roxburgh Red Finished!!

PYO Roxburgh Red have finished as from now. We have been innudated since early this morning and the trees have been picked out. Sorry everybody! We still have plenty of fruit on the Stall though so a trip up Central will not be wasted.
Remember PYO will restart next weekend with Stevens Favourite and Moorpark.

Fruit Update

We have had a hectic day with PYO Roxburgh Red and have been unexpectedly inundated with PYOers since the early hours of this morning.

Tomorrow will be the last day of PYO Roxburgh Red and with rain forecast around noon if you want to get some then come as early as possible.
After tomorrow we won’t have any PYO available until the following weekend (January 19-20) when we will have PYO Steven’s Favourite and Moorpark.

This season has been all over the place and a combination of a light apricot crop around the district and an early season has made for a challenging time to say the least.

We will still have a plentiful variety of apricots available on the Stall this week and Shiro plums will be on the Stall from later on this week.
Billington plums are about 5 days away and PYO nectarines are STILL about 9 days away.

Will keep you posted :)

Any queries then flick us a message or call/txt Ruby on 027 288 6090

Fruit Update:

We have finished our cherries for the season but there are still plenty of cherries available at other orchards throughout the Valley.

We have plenty of Sundrop apricots available on the Stall in 6kg boxes for $20 and PYO Sundrop are still on track to start this Saturday (January 5).
We also have Early Wilson plums on the Stall in 1.5kg bags for $5.
Nectarines and other apricot varieties are still a couple of weeks away 😁

New spuds have finished for the season.

The birds have decided to target the plums and apricots now so Big Bertha is being relocated to help repel them while Captain Jack is still holding his ground in the nectarine block. 😎
