Crop prospects for 2014

Compared with last year, the 2014 season is running about 3 weeks early.  The pears have flowered in good sunny weather, with lots of bee and insect activity.  Their work is now clearly visible, with an excellent initial set of tiny pear fruitlets standing upright in their thousands.  Over time, these thick clusters will thin naturally and the growing fruitlets will turn over to the hanging position.

The apples are going through the same process, but some way behind the pears.  Right now they are in full bloom, with probably the best display of flower we have ever seen.  It will be late June before we can start to predict the crop loads and in the meantime our spray operators have an important job to keep the developing crop free from insects and fungal diseases.



We are registed with the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange.
If this is a requirement for trading with us, please initiate a relationship via the Sedex website.
