We will be open this week only Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday,..11am-6pm
We reopen on Tuesday 11th September.
I know it is early to think about Christmas gifts but damson gin/vodka makes a well received present. This week, a number of grandparents have been picking damsons for this purpose, knowing their adult grandchildren will appreciate it.
Opening times this weekend…
We’ve still got a good supply of a variety of plums, including Victoria’s; damsons are at their best; more apple varieties are ready daily.
Special offer this weekend….if you mention this post we will give you 2 lbs of Bramley apples FREE!
Although we’ve had a busy bank holiday, there are plenty of plums left, though Edwards are nearly finished.
The first Worcester apples have been picked today. These are always best just picked. PYO is available.
We will be open each day this week from 11am-6pm.
We will not be at the Pershore Plum Festival this year. If you intend to go, please do call in and get your plums from us on the way there or back. We have a good selection and you can try before you buy. If you want a quantity of any particular plum or damson ie 10lbs or more, please let us know in advance so we can have them ready for you.
We will be open 10 – 6pm on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
We still have plenty of plums to PYO or buy ready picked. Victoria, Marjorie, Kirkes Blue, Burbank, Edward and a few Yellow Pershore.
Damsons are also ready and are a good size this year.
Cooking apples – Bramley and Grenadier
Eating apples – Katy, Discovery,George Cave, Fortune, Epicure and James Grieve.
Worcester apples will be ready in about a week.
This coming weekend is our Plum Weekend (August 18th and 19th). There will be a wide variety of plums for sale ready picked and PYO, including Victorias. Paul will give free walking talks round the orchard at 11am and 1pm on Saturday and 2pm Sunday. If a group of you is coming and want a different time, let us know asap.
Katy apples are now available as well as Discovery. Cookers are Grenadier and hopefully Bramley by Saturday.
Damsons – They are plentiful but just not quite ready. Although larger than usual at this stage, they are still very hard so we are estimating 1st September, but watch this space!!
We are now well in to the plum harvest with a good range of varieties available including, Opal, Czar, Purple and Yellow Pershores, Heron, Swan and Excalibur (a Vic cross). We also now have Discovery apples. Our Plum Weekend is next weekend so we hope to have our largest variety of plums available by then. It would be good to see you!
Opening times over this weekend are rather limited as we have a family event, so we will be open 9-11am tomorrow and Noon – 5pm on Sunday. Monday – Friday next week will be 11 – 6pm.
Opals and Czars will be available for just another few days. Prolifics should last until the end of next week. Purple and Yellow Pershores should be ready to pick from Monday. Belles are likely to be ready at the start of next week too.
Depending on the weather, Victorias are unlikely to be ready much before the middle of the month. They are still green and quite small.
The only apple available so far is Beauty of Bath – these are quite a sharp apple.
Opening times from today are –
Tomorrow (Saturday 4th August) 9 – 3.30pm
Sunday 10 – 6pm
Monday – Friday next week 11 – 6pm
Prolifics, Opals and Czars are now ready. Prices are 90p lb (£1.98 / kg) PYO and for ready picked £1.50 lb (£3.30 / kg).
We will be open this week Sunday to Friday 11am – 6pm. Next weekend’s times and fruit availability will be updated later in the week. If you want to place an order for collection outside of opening times, please let us know.
Although we have plenty of fruit on the trees, we are waiting for some rain to help to swell it. It is therefore very difficult to predict when the picking season will start but we will definitely not have our shop open until Sunday 29th July at the earliest.
I’ll keep you updated as to the situation and hope to see you sometime during the summer.
