General fruit sizing – 13/02/23

Please find attached this week’s general fruit sizing information.

Gala sizing continues to be of concern. I have adjusted the Galaxy and Hi Coloured Gala graphs this week because I had a misnamed variety block. However, there is still considerable variation between blocks and growers with fruit below the average size line need to carefully consider their harvest and maturity management strategies. The Pink Lady strains are tracking reasonably well although also on the small side.
