BUDS APPEARING

Our PurpleFit Saskatoon Berry producers are checking their trees, so far it looks as if almost all the trees survived our very harsh winter. The first stage of the buds are now appearing, so if all goes well we should have fresh berries about the 11th of July. This is a very approximate date at this point, we’ll keep you posted on the most likely dates for our berry harvest.

THE TIMING OF THE PURPLEFIT BERRY HARVEST

The weather plays a major roll in the timing of the Saskatoon Berry harvest. In the Winnipeg and Interlake areas, we are experiencing a major drought, with very little snow last winter and no moisture this spring. A late frost could wipe out our entire years crop. We are hoping for just the right amount of rain, heat and no frost or brush fires! We’ll keep you posted on the progress of the berries.
