Gembrook Fruits 2019-2020 season

Updated    7 pm MONDAY  27th JANUARY 2020

TUESDAY 28th      CLOSED

WEDNESDAY  29th   CLOSED

PLEASE VISIT THIS SITE ON WEDNESDAY EVENING FOR AN UPDATE ON ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON. As our crop is now largely fully ripe, when and how long we remain open will depend on the weather, but it is likely that we will only open on weekends and perhaps a day or so during the week once school starts.

Please note:  Although less severely than Melbourne, we too were delivered some of the red dust in last Wednesday night’s rain which can still be seen on our blueberries. As the blueberries are in excellent condition this dust can easily be removed. It did not seem to affect the decision to pick by any of our customers since then.

WE ARE ONLY OPEN FOR REGISTERED CUSTOMERS and INVITEES.

 

General Comments on Season ahead:

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR CUSTOMERS WHO STILL WANT BLUEBERRIES THIS SEASON

.While we expect to have fruit for the first weekend in February, whether all the major varieties will still have quality fruit later in February will depend on the weather.

 

CROP UPDATE:

NORTHLAND BLOCKS:

Both blocks look as good as we can remember with a  medium crop. The bushes look very healthy. A very good supply of ripe fruit with easy picking.

OLD MIXED VARIETY BLOCK:

Despite the lack of attention this block has received, the quality and quantity of fruit is about as good as we have ever produced. Some of the larger fruited varieties may soon become over-ripe.

PLEASE NOTE:   During February we are likely to change the days which we open as most customers will have returned to work and children will be back in school.

Next update: Wednesday 29th Jan

YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN CONTAINERS. We do not have any card facilities for payment.

Blueberry season 2018-2019

Our season for 2018-2019 is very late, but we hope to start just before Christmas. However, the weather forecast for the days leading up to Christmas Day is not looking too good. All registered customers for whom we have current e-mail addresses will receive an invitation at the start of the season. This website will be updated every few days until we start.

Please note: Only currently registered customers may pick fruit at our farm.
