We are going to tell you about this year’s harvest.
The apricot harvest began this year 14 days later than usual, namely July 12, 2021. Early varieties froze, with a few exceptions, and the main part of the harvest was Velkopavlovická variety. On August 2, 2021, we ended the harvest with the Bergeron variety. The biggest losses came at the time of flowering at the beginning of April due to frosts and also the weather was not very pollinating – cold, windy and rain did not attract enough bees. From the expected 80 tons, we finally harvested less than 12.
You can look forward to Starovická apricot brandy from this year’s harvest next year, now after distillation it will still lie in barrels for a while.
