The caper patch at the end of January and the peak of the season. Our season commences at the 


beginning of December and continues until March/April each year. We pick from the same 


plant every 5-7days to harvest buds but if we miss picking the buds, they flower and once pollinated 


form the caperberry - the fruit of the plant.

 

Plants mature by year 4 and will survive 30 + years. We harvest each bud by hand

 

in the cool of the morning with strict supervision by Max Ellis the Wonder Dog.  Max's main job is

 

cockatoo patrol.

 

Once picked, the buds are washed then salted using Murray River Salt - a process which takes

 

about 4 weeks then they're ready for sale.

 

Caperberries start to develop in late January and once picked are preserved in a brine for about 4 


weeks then finished in a white wine pickle.
