We have almost finished our Sundrop Apricots and we expect them to be gone by Wednesday this week (January 12).
P.Y.O Sundrops will still be available until then.
We will be starting Roxburgh Reds the same day though so we will still have plenty of Apricots available.
They will be available for P.Y.O for $1.90/kg and will be sold on the stall for $2.50/kg for seconds.
Valley Gold Apricots are also expected to start within the next few days.
MoorParks Apricots are still about 1 1/2 – 2 weeks away but we will keep you updated.
Ok guys here’s the run-down on the current fruit situation here at Hobbs Orchard.
We currently have P.Y.O Sundrop Apricots for $1.90/kg.
We also have plenty of Sundrop 1sts($3.00/kg) and 2nds($2.50/kg) for sale on the Stall.
Both 1sts and 2nds will be available throughout the Apricot season.
Roxburgh Red and Peeka Apricots are expected to begin sometime next week.
Valley Gold Apricots are about 1 1/2 weeks away.
MoorParks are still about two to three weeks away.
Our first Nectarines should be ready in about a week.
We should have Peaches in about 2 weeks.
Late crop Nectarines should be ready in about 3 weeks.
We have to remind you though that thanks to the unique, yet unpredictable, Central Otago climate these dates are merely an educated guess and they may be adjusted if the weather has a temper tantrum!
Therefore it is a good idea to regularly check back into this page to make sure that the dates haven’t changed and we haven’t been hit by a plague of locusts!!
