We have seen a such big flush of fruit come on.
Mostly sunny days with hot temperatures throughout the week. Daily temperatures ranged between 21°C – 38°C. Overnight temperatures ranged between 12°C - 24°C.
Larger volumes harvested.
Fruit quality is good. Fruit size is medium. Ripeness is ¾ colour.
The sunny conditions and hot temperatures have continued and has lead to a considerable increase in harvest volumes within a short period of time. We expect this to continue into next week as further warmer temperatures have been forecast. As we have seen a such big flush of fruit come on, we will likely see a gradual slow-down in harvest volumes as temperatures drop, possibly towards the end of the week.
