Community Fruit Harvesting
At this time of year our fruit trees are groaning. But it can sometimes be a tall order to gather the harvest before it falls. Coming to the rescue: Community Fruit Harvesting. These are regionally organised bunches of fruit-picking volunteers, who are especially busy this Easter weekend. Wellington's Community Fruit Harvesting group organiser Julie Harris and volunteer Manuela Fletcher talk about their recent hauls of quinces and peaches. They also tell us how to tell when fruit is ripe.
