Strong bora wind devastates cherry harvest in Vipava Valley

By: J.S., STA

The upper Vipava Valley, SW, had been looking at an exceptional harvest of cherries this year, but the plans of local fruit growers were thwarted by the strong bora wind which virtually swept away the ripened cherries, also tearing down branches and young cherry trees at the weekend.

“The damage is immense,” Bogdan Slokar, a fruit grower from Lokavec near Ajdovščina. Fruit growers nevertheless expect the unripened cherries will recover and fully develop.
