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.

Jan 12

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
