Extremely hot days. Daily temperatures ranged between 15°C - 43°C. Overnight temperatures ranged between 11°C - 21°C.
Large numbers harvested.
Quality is ok with fruit being slightly forward in colour than what we prefer.
We had four days with temperatures exceeding 40°C, which has placed the plants under enormous stress. Overall, fruit is ok in quality but slightly forward in colour. Fortunately, as the heat wave passed we received rain, which helped the plants as well as strip them of any dust which can sometimes bring on plant diseases during such hot and dry weather. We are expecting a lot of rain later in the week and are hopeful that damage is minimal.
