Warning – lengthy post ahead!
Sundrop apricots will be available on the Fruit Stall as from this Saturday – 6 January – they will be available for about two weeks so there is no hurry to get up here.
Once the “PYO Sundrop area” “is evenly ripened, we will open up for PYO and at present it looks like it will be the following Saturday – 13 January – will keep you updated.
But mark it on your Calendar – 13 January – as I cannot see us opening any earlier for PYO…
Courier orders for Sundrops will start next Monday and will be sent out Tuesday and Wednesday as well. Txt/ring – 027 288 6090 – if you have a freight price or would like to place an order.
Roxburgh Red apricots will be available in about 2 weeks time and Moorparks maybe just over 2 weeks time as well……..Valley Gold, Peeka, Stevens Favourite are also roughly between 2 -3 weeks away. These will also be available on the Fruit Stall as well as PYO.
Will keep you posted.
Next week we are promised a lot of sunny days so ripening will get a boost…
PYO Nectarines are still about 2 weeks away.
At the moment, we also have an early variety of nectarines, Diamond Bright, available on the Fruit Stall – these are not available for PYO – Sam and I planted these about seven years ago and this year they have produced a wonderful crop.
Nearly forgot – we have Red Beaut plums on the Stall…these are a great tasting plum and yellow-flesh.
Earli Ril apricots – a very old variety – are also available on the Fruit Stall.. a great tasting apricot….these are not as popular as Sundrops but have a great flavour
“Duffs Early Jewel” plums are less than a week away.
Billington, our first red flesh plum of the Season, are still about 2 weeks away.
All other plum varieties are growing well….as is all other fruit…
