There will be less stonefruit in Western Australia this season, as warmer conditions in parts of the state during winter reduced fruit set.
Mark Wilkinson is the chair of Fruit West's Stone Fruit Leadership Group and is a Pickering Brook grower, with cherries and peaches just east of Perth.
He says while there will be plenty of stonefruit before Christmas, some lines will be in short supply after the festive season.
"After Christmas, because of the warm winter, most of those varieties have a lot less fruit sitting on them.
"So after Christmas the fruit will be a bit harder to find," he said.
