Good Picking Conditions

  • The fruit is abundant, but not as plentiful or easily found as when conditions are excellent.
  • It takes a little longer to pick the same amount of fruit as compared to when conditions are excellent.
  • You may have to cover more area to fill your container.
  • The quality of the fruit is still very good.
  • The season may be starting or winding down, or we may be in between the peak of a variety of a crop.

Scattered Picking Conditions

  • It takes longer to pick and fill your container.
  • You will have to work harder and cover more area to fill your container.
  • The quality can be excellent and there will be pockets of great fruit, but it will take more effort.
