Australian Cherries

Current update on cherries from Northern Victoria – Kyabram (Goulburn Valley)

Harvest is looking to be around the 26th of November- Last year was the 1st December

Flowering has been very good but we have had a cold spring so far which is looking to continue- growers need to be right on top of their sprays as this is crucial time of when mites breed and grow.

2 photos attached- 1st one is with no covers over the trees, this helps better pollination.
After which they roll out the covers and photo from last year a week later than now, with covers over the trees. This is the only fully covered 500 tonne crop in the region
