2015 Fruit Competitions

The 2015 Competition Schedule will be sent out to growers this week.  The Marden Fruit Show Society have made a couple of changes for this years Show.  The biggest change is for the Top Fruit Competitions classes 1 – 21, there will now be a 1 point deduction for competition fruit not displayed correctly.

Apples should be packed with the Produce Packaging logo displayed correctly and with eyes to the top of the tray or alternatively on their side with eyes to the right.

Conference and Concorde pears can be alternated as shown in the picture. Comice pears can be packed on an angle with eyes to the right; this prevents stalk damage to neighbouring fruit. It is VERY IMPORTANT that the Produce Packaging logo is the right way up as shown in the pictures.
