Mostly sunny days with warm temperatures. Daily temperatures ranged between 26°C – 29°C. Overnight temperatures ranged between 15°C - 20°C.
Smaller volumes harvested.
Fruit quality is good. Fruit size is small - small/medium. Ripeness is half – three quarter colour.
The warm temperatures and windy conditions are continuing to provide challenges this week as the fruit is ripening much slower and therefore still affecting harvest volumes. We are attempting to alleviate some of the stress on the plants by making adjustments to improve nutrient uptake. Warmer temperatures and windy conditions are not uncommon for this time of year, but this season has been particularly challenging compared to previous.
