Gembrook Fruits 2018-2019 season

Updated    5.30pm Saturday 22nd  February 2019

SPECIAL  OUT-OF-SEASON OPENING ONE DAY ONLY

SUNDAY 24th FEBRUARY

CROP UPDATE:

NORTHLAND BLOCKS:

Both blocks have patches with fairly easy to easy picking but there is only a small amount of fruit on each bush. Quality of fruit is very good with virtually all the blueberries fully ripe and sweet.

OLD MIXED VARIETY BLOCK:

This block continues to defy our experience of unpruned plants with bushes in the open areas ripening at least some of the fruit they are carrying. Customers will be recommended to pick our Caroline variety which has sweet fruit with a very good flavour. Other varieties may be picked but care will be required to harvest the best quality fruit.

PLEASE NOTE: Can we remind customers that it pays to arrive early, at, or soon after opening on sunny days so that you can benefit from pleasant picking conditions. Gembrook starts off being cooler than most Melbourne suburbs, but later in the day the temperature can be three or four degrees above that of Melbourne.

OPEN THIS SUNDAY 24th February    ONE DAY ONLY

OPEN 8am – 4pm Last entry is 2pm

 

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

    Hi Graeme and Kay, just want to ask whether we can bring 6 of our friends (3 from Sydney and 1 from US) tomorrow, Saturday 29 Dec 2018, to pick blueberries. It will be just one off occasion and our friends have not experienced blueberry picking. Would appreciate if they be allowed to come with us. Thank you.

    Lillian and Orlando.
