Is there any mystery to picking a cherry? Is it difficult? Not really – but there is a technique that should be used to protect the trees. This is because cherries often form around a spur – which forms into next year’s cherries. If that spur is damaged, then no cherries will grow in that spot during the next cherry season.

In this video, Alan Mayne of Stella Creek Cherry Orchard in the Adelaide Hills shows how to pick a cherry to minimise the risk of damage to the trees.

Whenever a person visits Stella Creek for the first time, we show them how to pick. So, if you are still not confident after watching this video – no problem! One of our friendly staff will show you how its done!

Picking a cherry can be a magical experience. Bring your family and come up to Stella Creek ! We’d love to see you.
