PLEASE NOTE BELOW THE DAYS WE ARE OPEN
The cloud remained at Gembrook for nearly the whole day and despite the humidity picking conditions were comparatively pleasant. For once our highest temperature [28C] was less than Melbourne [33C].
NORTHLAND PLANTINGS Plenty of ripe fruit in both Northland blocks. Although some bushes at ends of rows close to the gate have been heavily picked, other bushes still have about half their original crop still to be picked. Excellent quality fruit picked on Thursday.
OLD VARIETY BLOCK -unpruned section These bushes have a very large crop but many have managed to ripen a significant amount of fruit. We did not expect to pick blueberries from this section this year but most varieties have easily accessible fruit at the ends of the rows and in the open areas. Customers who do not wish to pick Northland will have no difficulty picking from the old block, even though the centre of the rows are probably too dense for picking.
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 Melbourne.
