Citrus no longer returning – poor production … weather impact ??

News Alert – I had posted that Quarterdeck Organic Citrus would be returning to the market this week but unfortunately Phil has just advised me that he has finished stripping 2 of the 3 orchards and there simply isn’t enough fruit to be able to offer citrus this season. So my apologies to you if you – like me – were looking forward to selecting from a variety of fresh local citrus. Our commiserations to Phil – we will miss his beautiful produce . This really increases our understand the challenges of farming!!  Fruit crops can be so easily lost because of poor weather at the time of fruit setting or some other weather variable  at a critical growing time  … meaning a whole year without produce! We wish Phil much better luck in the coming season and look forward to his return in 2016.
