Our Story

 

 

We are a friendly bunch of New Zealanders providing premium Avocados from our orchards to your doorstep. 

Our mission is to encourage more New Zealanders to eat more greens, enjoy the creamy taste of Avocados whilst enjoying their nutritious benefits!

We’ve been growing Avocados in New Zealand's Avocado capital, Katikati, for over 20 years. 

We have planted avocado trees all around the Bay of Plenty with people who have a passion for horticulture and want to produce food for our world to enjoy.

To be the best Avocado grower is no easy task, but we have a team of over 15 experienced workers staying busy throughout the year on some of New Zealand's best orchards. 

We all work rain, sunshine or pandemic, to ensure our orchards can grow as many of the best Avocados possible to feed our big family of Aotearoa.

Avocados are a nutritious super food that have over 20 different vitamins and minerals, combined with good fats (monounsaturated fats), making them a nutrient dense and healthy food choice for your breakfast, lunch or dinner.  

Delivering our premium Avocados direct to you means that we eliminate the risk of damage and treatment that Avocados might get elsewhere. We will deliver straight from our orchard to your doorstep, so just be patient and don't open them prematurely...

How Avocados grow:

Avocados take 9 -18 months to grow on a tree. Visual development starts in September, October and November with flowering and pollination involving our much-loved bees. Fruit development at this time is largely dependent on weather events (if it is too cold or to wet the embryo will not develop) and tree nutrition levels (that’s our job). As the months and seasons past, we let the fruit develop and grow into a size that meets the desires of our consumers in the fruit bowl.

Key points:

  • Light conversion is assisted with pruning to let as much light into the tree so photosynthesis can occur.
  • Trees are nurtured through the dry summer months and carefully cared for during the windy, wet and cold winter months.
  • July, we are on the edge of our seats, testing fruit to see if it's going to be right for picking and eating.
  • The longer we leave the fruit on the tree, the more oil content in the fruit and the better tasting the fruit is.
