Have been doing some spot picking over the last week. Still cold and things are unfolding slowly. Have sold some Empress and Burlat through the stall. I took these photos today November 12.
Our Son Mark picking some Royal Hazel in the photo and Royal Lynn.
Mark and I planted these in July 2013, colt root stock, free standing vase, 6mx 3m. Perhaps the best thing I have handled in this time slot. Maybe these lower chill varieties have a place, good size, firm flesh and they eat well
From the orchard to the stall
In the open garden at Cherry Dale
Good to get a start on the cherries. Stonefruit not far from starting, weather permitting.
Please come for a visit to our orchard. Walk in the trees, stroll through the nursery and garden. Visit the fairy house where the children can play. Sample our cherries and stonefruit, have a picnic lunch or morning tea in our grounds. Enjoy a nice family day out at Cherry Dale
Best wishes to all
