Usually every year we go cherry picking before Christmas. However since this year the weather here got warmer later than previous years and it was like winter some of the days, cherry and its relative ripen late. We have been checking when the Forest Range in Adelaide Hill will open for cherry picking this year. We went cherry picking on boxing day. Previous years, it closed after Christmas. What I observe is that usually cherry are grown at slope areas.
Cherry trees under the nets to protect from birds. There are 2 types of cherries grown here, Red cherry and White cherry. The red cherry are grown on the upper part and white cherry below. The fee entrance is $3 for adult and $2 for children and you can eat as many as you can and to bring back home is $6 per-kilogram.
The red cherries which is so much sweeter than the white ones.
Dracula kid, don’t forget to bring some towel to wipe off the stain and wear dark clothing for cherry picking. Rayyan mouth still red even though after I wiped, should have bring some wet towel along.
Like Christmas tree decoration the white cherries.
We started cherry picking from the top so after eating all those very sweet red cherries until you don’t one to see another one anymore and walking towards downhill it was a refreshing taste for white cherry which is less sweet but still taste nice.
We brought home almost 7 Kilograms of cherries. The drive back home was a bit winding and upsetting for the stomach with too much cherry for one day. But it was a fun day.
