Annual Juniper Harvest
Oct 31, 2017
We were out on Box Hill in Surrey last week with the good people of the National Trust picking juniper berries for our gin. The best day was Wednesday, a beautiful summer day, not bad for the end of October.
The juniper is in pretty good shape with a decent crop. Juniper berries take two years to 'ripen' and the one-year old green berries on the juniper look fantastic at the moment, being very plump and abundant, so next year should be an excellent crop.
