Harvest 2012
Tuesday, 15 January 2013 15:38


Harvest 2012 is best described as "disappointing" in terms of crop yields, due to the cold, wet weather during flowering and the crucial fruit development period.

Despite looking good on the trees, crops harvested consistently failed to come up to estimates and we finished the season with only 58% of last year's bumper harvest. This shortage of fruit affected our customers and also our pickers who left early having had a short work period. However size and quality were excellent, with fruit scab well under control in a difficult season.

This story was repeated over most of the UK fruit growing areas and will mean higher prices and shortages until next harvest. We are already pruning the trees and booking our pickers for next harvest, so we all hope for better news in 2013.
