The dramatic fluctuation of temperatures over the last couple of weeks has brought on significant challenges which, so far we have overcome well. We have now ordered the seeds and planed for the winter plantings. We expect these seedlings to be ready by early February.

Quality is very good.
The current harvest pattern will continue until the end of the month. Numbers of Red Capsicums picked are way above the volumes of Yellow, while Green sits in between. Looking at the plants, there is plenty of fruit setting and plenty in the green mature stage, which will just need to take colour in order to be picked.

Victoria has had quiet unfortunate weather due to heavy rain. Although, our specific region did not experience such weather. Showers however, are forecast over the weekend and we are hoping that we do not receive as much rain as the metropolitan areas as it may compromise the quality of the first harvest, which is planned to take place within a week.

Because temperatures climbed consistently, we harvested all fruit.
Sunny and very hot days. Daily temperatures ranged between 15°C - 40°C. Overnight temperatures ranged between 12°C - 15°C.
Good numbers harvested.
Fruit is looking very good.
Because temperatures climbed consistently, we harvested all fruit at the “breaker” colour stage to avoid fruit reaching full colour and becoming soft. We also picked our 3rd planting for the 1st time, where our pads and fans are located and although outside temperatures reached above 40°C, internal temperatures where at 28°C, therefore avoiding any issues.

Plants are looking healthy and loaded with fruit. We will have good numbers to harvest over the Christmas period, with large volumes of red and slightly smaller volumes of yellow and green. We are also running some orange trails which are currently going very well.

Weather conditions have changed from cool, to very hot.
Extremely hot days. Daily temperatures ranged between 19°C - 38°C. Overnight temperatures ranged between 10°C - 16°C.
Currently, we are not harvesting.

Weather conditions have changed from cool, to very hot. A big jump in a very short period, which has obviously stressed the plants. With our efforts in maintaining these young plants, we expect them to adjust to these new temperatures quickly. Hopefully, we will not have excessive flower drop which will effect the volumes at the start of the season.
