Our avocados come from our 10 acre block in Glenbervie, just a 10 minute drive from central Whangarei.
The Glenbervie area is characterized by rich volcanic soils and stone walls built by early Scottish immigrants in the mid 1800s. The 400 young trees are mainly of the Hass variety.
All of our avocados meet the stringent industry standard requirements of export grade avocados ensuring the best of quality and care. They are fertilised by the amazing BioGro certified RokSolid fertiliser. Rok Solid is a full spectrum fertiliser with all the micro nutrients the avocado tree needs. The quality of the soil in this case results in a full flavoured avocado that stands out from the rest.
We have 5 bee hives to help with pollination and therefore yield. A small quantity of honey will be available in the autumn.
We hand pick, sort and pack the avocados sent to our customers on a weekly basis to ensure both quality and freshness. Some external blemishes like wind rubbing might affect the avocado’s appearance for exporting but the internal flesh will be just fine. Should a problem avocado slip by we are happy to provide a replacement.
We are delighted to provide you and your friends with the highest quality avocados available in NZ.
