Aussie growers optimistic about cherry season
Fiona Hall from Caernarvon Cherries, has said it should be a bumper crop this year.
"We're only just seeing the fruit set now and it looks like it's going to be a very good crop right across the Orange," Hall said.
Its too early to tell about varieties as they are still in full bloom, but the fruit should become apparent in the next few days. Generally there is about 2 weeks of full bloom and Hall said that during those two weeks, "We need warm nights and warm days so the bees get busy pollinating."
However, due to later bloom this year, harvesting will be around a week later than normal.
Caernarvon Charried has eight different varieties on this farm and they pack for about 20 growers from Griffith, Mudgee, Wellington and all the districts around Orange.
Generally they pack around 1,000 tonne but this year they are hoping to pack around 1,300 tonne, with the Australian crops looking to be around 1,600 tonne.
Hall fears that there will be an oversupply of cherries, so it's important they keep working with the government in trying to open up new markets and maintaining markets.
