Harvest 2015

by admin ·

I’m a bit late writing this. We just got busy with life and the time slips by.
We had a good harvest this year. Mild weather and extra rain this winter combined with a wet spring to increase the early growth and the canopy went a little wild. Our total harvest was 1400lbs. Fruit quality was very good, with pH at 3.7 and Brix @ 22.5. TA=5.5g/l. Summer rains caused us to postpone harvest and drove sugar levels down. Sugar rose up to 25 brix on berries sampled before harvest, and berries were falling off the clusters while harvesting. Its aparent that I still have some uneven ripening, as the final sugar level was 22.5. Even so, the quality seemed very good.
I’ve attached some photos of the process, and would like to thank all who helped!
