FGV’s Grower Services Manager, Michael Crisera, recently hosted the FGV Emerging Leaders Group on a tour of the Epping Market, Nine Mile and Armour’s apples.

Key learnings for the group and interesting notes were as follow:

Epping market

  • Very little WBC pears seen, more Packhams , Josephines and Corella pears seen.
  •  Grower / small floor area seemed to have a lot of hat bins of fruit
  • Larger wholesale trading was mostly conducted by pre-order phone and not many buyers actively seen on the market floor
  • Large fruit ripening facilities on site.
