Community Fruit Harvesting

From Easter Monday, 9:25 am on 28 March 2016

At this time of year our fruit trees are groaning, but it can be a tall order to gather the harvest before it falls. Coming to the rescue are Community Fruit Harvesting groups – regionally organised bunches of fruit-picking volunteers, who are especially busy at this time of year.

Wellington's Community Fruit Harvesting group organiser Julie Harris and volunteer Manuela Fletcher talk with Lynn Freeman about their recent haul of quinces and peaches and how to tell when fruit is ripe.
