Can you find all four Perennia staff in the photo? Our crew was hand thinning the fruit on Gala trees for a research trial on thinning. We timed the hand thinning process for each treatment because time can help us approximate labour savings for commercial farms. Hopefully by now you have found Jenna, Jon, Sophie, and Jordan among the trees!
