Fruit Update
Apricots have now finished on the Stall πŸ‘
We have Billington plums and Red Gravenstein apples available 🍎🍎 our very first apple for the Season – they are sweet and crispy for eating and cooking.

YO Fruit Update
PYO of all varieties of apricots will finish tomorrow – there should be enough to take us through to late afternoon – it is mostly ladder work now.
We will still have bagged and boxed apricots on the Stall tomorrow and during the weekend and beyond as we have an area especially marked out for Stall Fruit which Sam picks daily.
Shiro Plums have now finished – Billington plums are in full swing – these are a lovely small red flesh plum, great for eating, bottling and stewing, etc.
Mum (Sandra) bottles these whole and I must say they taste great 😁😁
Red Gravenstein – our very first apple – are still a week away
Bon Chretian Pears are roughly 10 days away 🍐🍐🍐 Black Doris plums are still about 2-3 weeks away as are Purple King plums 😁
And we are just over a month away for our Royal Gala apples and from then we will have many other varieties to follow 🍎🍎🍎🍏🍏🍏
Here’s my Mum, Sandra, busy helping stock the Fruit Stall, all ready to pull up her mask at the dot of 7 😊😊
This is her 32nd Fruit Season and is still going strong 😊❀️

Fruit Update
Just a reminder to all those coming for PYO Moorparks, which starts this coming Saturday, to bring your own containers, whether they be shopping bags, laundry baskets or fish crates – our scales can manage all of these 😊😊
There are still PYO Roxburgh Red apricots and these may be still available on Saturday if you can’t get up till then.
PYO Stevens Favourite apricots are still on track for next Tuesday.
😁
If you aren’t into preserving apricots, there is another method which is really simple.
Just half the apricots and pop them into freezer bags 😊
But always remember to cook from frozen, never let a bag thaw or they will be a brown mess.
You can also cook a stock pot full of apricots and when cool, put a cup of apricots into each freezer bag. No need for further cooking after they thaw. 😳
Stewed apricots are lovely with yoghurt, ice cream, muesli and other breakfast cereals
They are also delicious when making apricot muffins, crumbles etc.
Report up at the Fruit Stall when you arrive for PYO and Mum,(Sandra) or I will point you in the right direction to the apricot of your choice 😁
We have an amazing crop of Moorparks so plenty for everyone 😊

Fruit Update
PYO Roxburgh Red apricots are still available.
PYO Moorparks commences this coming Saturday 22 January. We have a great crop 😁😁😁
PYO Nectarines has been cancelled – we only had a small crop this Season, due to adverse weather conditions during Spring, but we had assumed there would be enough but sadly we were wrong. Sorry about this!
On a brighter note there are Fruit Stalls in the Valley with Nectarine signs up so you won’t miss out 😊
PYO Stevens Favourite apricots begins next Tuesday 25 January.
Plenty of fruit on the Fruit Stall 😊
We only sell what we grow.
