Just a reminder everyone that PYO Nectarines start tomorrow and we should have them for about 7-10 days.
Remember to bring your own buckets, boxes, shopping bags,etc. We still have plastic bags available for those who forget. :)
We have just started Red Gravenstein apples – our first apple of the season. Our main crop varieties will begin in March. They are a bit tart to eat at the moment but are wonderful for cooking 😊🍎 You can bottle them as well. One quick and easy dessert is stewed apple and custard….or you can just cook them up to have with your breakfast cereal.
We still have plenty of Billington & Burbank Plums – both of which lovely for eating, cooking, making sauce or jam, etc.
Even though we have finished our apricots, there’s still plenty in the Valley so a trip up to Central will not be wasted. 😃
Plenty more fruit is coming up. Pears should be starting this weekend – will keep you updated :)
If you have a fruit query, txt or ring me (Ruby) on 027 288 6090.
Remember we are open 7am-9pm every day and we only sell what we grow

🍑Fruit Update 🍎🍐
We will still have boxed apricots on the Stall over the next few days.
Billington plums (red flesh) are a great eating and cooking plum. Mum and I bottle them whole in the jars and freeze them for making Jam during Winter.
Burbank plums are coming on..they are yellow flesh and great for eating and cooking. I love these cooked with custard or yogurt.
They freeze well as does the Billington plum.
It looks like the next variety of Nectarines will be ready for PYO as from Wednesday, Waitangi Day…..will confirm closer to the time.😊
Red Gravenstein apples….our very first apple..will be ready ‘possibly’ from the 9th February. …………and Bon Chretien Pears will be available in 5kg and 10kg bags as from ‘possibly’ the 9th Feb…will you posted. So sorry for such vague predictions but this Season is a very strange one!!!!
Black Doris and Omega Plums are still to ripen.

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.

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
