Last day tomorrow, Wed. 10/01/18

That's right folks, tomorrow Wed. 10th January is the last day open for picking.

We still have a little fruit left for the intrepid, adventurous,  undemanding, care-free characters out there. Lazy, perfectionist or precious types need not apply, because the fruit is getting sparse and on the verge of withering and over ripeness but you can still find some good fruit.

By the way, the price per KG is now only $5. Note I haven't highlighted this bargain because we don't want to be rushed and then a whole lot of punters are disappointed.

We will remain open until  a critical mass of pickers are found exhausted and dying hunting down the last cherry in the orchard or by 4:00PM whichever comes first.

Get a load of this charming little Vegemite... err Cherrymite below:

Free entry and cherries only $7 per kg until season end...soon.
Note we will close at 4PM today.
With only a few days till season end we have dropped the entry fee and maintained cherries @ $7 per kg. We had such a large crop and still have quite a bit of fruit remaining. We'd sooner the public get it rather than the Rainbow Lorikeets that have arrived in large numbers - I guess they're getting a bargain too. They're a beautiful and strikingly coloured bird that just love the cherries - refer photos below:

All cherries are reduced to only $7 per kg because we want to move them out as soon as possible before any more heat hits us.

We're getting to the end of the cherry season but we still have a lot of cherries available for sale because of the huge crop bestowed upon us by nature or the good lord be it you're a Evolutionist or Creationist.
The Van cherries survived yesterdays heat pretty well. I think it helps that there's still plenty of moisture in the soil and that the cherries are only small to medium of size.

We also opened the last variety of cherries called Sweethearts to the public this morning. Again it's a huge crop and so the cherries a re a little small, but they are firm and true to their name they are very sweet. See photos below.

We have closed from 1:00 PM today (Sat. 6th Dec.) due to the excessive heat.
We will open again tomorrow (Sun. 7th Dec.) from 8:00AM to 5:00PM.

Post 29/12/17: Reduced prices due to over-crop

posted 28 Dec 2017, 17:17 by Admin Cherrybomb   [ updated 28 Dec 2017, 17:22 ]

The price of cherries is reduced to $8.00 per kg due to over cropping - refer photos below. It's best to get the fruit off the tress before it spoils or drops off.
This price will hold until further notice, i.e. I update these pages again.

Obviously this won't last forever as the cherries move from the trees into buckets and peoples' tummies.

So you may only hold us to this "deal" (I hate that word) until another post states otherwise or this post is deleted.

Yours truly,

Cherrybomb Cherries

Free to good home!

We have a half dozen trees laden with a variety of cherries called Early Moss. They're only a small cherry but very sweet. The fruit is rain damaged and just past its peak but perfect for making jams, chutneys, wine - including cherry port... yum. Also very suitable for grappa for the Italian crowd - I hope that won't be read as racially prejudiced?

So if you're interested call ASAP.

Another 50mm of rain - great for the catchments, not so great for cherries. We’ve had a little over 150mm of rain in 7 days and the riper cherries – especially the heritage varieties like Merchant and Bing “crack it” However, the newer varieties like Blackstar and Santina have resisted quite well - refer photo below. I guess we were pretty lucky that we hadn’t had a long hot dry spell else I’m sure everything would have “cracked it”.

We have been selling the Merchant cherries at a super discounted rate of $5.00 because it would be daylight robbery not to given the degree of wreckage; but they’re fine for cooking, grappa, wine, etc., and if you're willing to work a little you can find some reasonable fruit within the wreckage.

We had 2 bus loads of Chinese students drop in on Tuesday – refer photos below. They had a ball and were lovely people. One poor lady slipped over in the cow poo which of course got a lot of laughs.

So it you’re coming over the weekend we certainly have fruit for Saturday and probably Sunday depending on demand tomorrow.

And remember to watch you don’t slip in the cow poo!

We had 100mm of rain over the weekend and it did quite a bit of damage to the early cherry varieties, particularly the Merchant and Bing varieties - refer the photos below. Please don't think these photos represent the general state of all the fruit - they are extreme but most of it is cracked to some degree. So we'll be selling these premium varieties (Bing and Merchant) at $7/kg where we normally sell it for $10/kg.

Fortunately we do have more current/modern varieties on the verge of maturity that have barely split like Blackstar (refer photo below) and Sumte that have cropped robustly and have minimal to no crack:

Blackstar

Actually all the cherries have cropped very well, in fact they have over-cropped which is a blessing and a curse because fruit size is inversely proportional to the volume of fruit.

We have heaps of Merchant and Moss varieties after so few customers on the weekend and it's all going out at $7/kg.

By this weekend we will have premium varieties available again.

Cheers.
