The 2017 vintage was a difficult one to start, coming off one the coldest winters in Eastern Washington’s
history. Despite a late frost our fruit survived. As Spring turned into Summer, Mother Nature delivered an
ideal growing season, long enough for our fruit to fully ripen and short enough to ensure we could pick it
before poor weather arrived.
