Higher elevation farmers that we've asked have all said that it has been a late season (longer winter), but so far conditions are favorable for spring harvest. They estimate that harvest will simply be one or two weeks later than usual. Farms at around 1000m elevation in Nantou County are preparing to harvest in the second week of April. At 1500m, harvest will begin in the beginning of May. Higher elevations will be later yet, so presumably the highest farms on Lishan and Dayuling will not be harvested until mid-June.
