As noted in the 1st crop estimate for the 2020/2021 season the South African table grape season started between 1 and 2 weeks later than normal in the two early regions. This was mainly due to colder spring weather.
The earliest region started packing in week 45. The grapes on the vines developed very well. Early Sweet (Grapaes) is harvested first followed by Prime and Starlight.
Packing started in week 46 amidst good harvesting conditions. The cooler spring weather led to the later start this year. Some of the first volumes will include varieties such as Flame seedless, Early Sweet and Prime.
The Olifants, Berg and Hex River regions have not started packing yet.
