What We Export

Achacha

This tropical fruit has been cultivated for centuries in parts of the tropical Amazon Basin of Bolivia, with the name translating to ‘honey kiss’. A relative of the mangosteen, achachas are tangy in taste and effervescent. Bright orange in colour when ripe, they are rich in vitamin C, riboflavin, potassium and also folate.

Apples

Pink Lady

Pink blush over a green/yellow base skin. A crisp apple with a dense, firm flesh and an excellent almost effervescent flavour.

Fuji

The skin colour of Fuji can vary, but it has a predominantly red/dull pink blush over a green/yellow base. A big apple with a honey sweet taste. It is firm-textured, crisp and juicy with an extremely dense flash.

Granny Smith

Known for the distinctive green flesh, which sometimes bears a red blush. This all-purpose apple has a very tart flavour.

Sundowner

Varies in colour from greenish-red to a full, deep red. Quite tart when first picked, Sundowners will sweeten towards the end of the season.

Rubigold (exclusive)

This variety has rich, ruby red skin and crisp, juicy golden flesh. When freshly cut, the flesh remains golden and clear for longer than most other apple varieties, making it the perfect addition to fruit salad and cheese platters.

Apricots

Castle Bright

Bright orange with slight red blush. Early-ripening, firm, tart-sweet flavor.

Orange Reds

This is one of the sweeter apricots, with a wide range of uses. It is best eaten at room temperature when it is at it’s sweetest. It can come in quite a large size, with an average of diameter of 50-55mm. There should be no green areas on the fruit, but instead a bright red blush should present itself. For maximum sweetness, it should be just firm to the touch.

Poppy Cots

Large and firm fruiting early. Light yellow to pale orange. Pleasing flavor, aromatic, freestone. Heavy producer.

Rivals

Fruit is large and oval, with equal halves and a mild flavor with low acidity. It has firm, deep orange flesh with a fine texture, featuring a light orange skin with a reddish blush on exposed cheeks.

Trevat

A very popular, excellent quality apricot. Pale apricot skin colour. Flesh is orange in colour, firm and juicy with good flavour.

 

Asparagus

Green

The most popular variety in Australia, it is grown in a flat bed and it is the exposure to sunlight that increases the chlorophyll content and thus increases the green colour. Green asparagus has an intense nutty flavour.

Purple

Grown mostly underneath a mound of dirt to avoid sun exposure, the top 7cm is allowed to grow above the surface before harvesting to allow colour to develop. The flavour intensity is in between that of the green and white varieties.

White

Grown underneath a mound of dirt to avoid all exposure to sunlight, white asparagus is the most delicate flavour of the three varieties.

Avocados

Hass

Distinctive pebbly skin and more oval shape than other varieties. Sometimes referred to as the ‘black sheep of the family’, the Hass turns a rich purple when ripe and ready to eat.

Reed

Smooth, green skin with a golden buttery flesh. This variety has the unique distinction of being the only avocado that doesn’t turn brown when cut.

Shepard

Lapin

With deep, ruby red colored skin and a plump size, this fruit has a slight heart-shape and lustered finish. This cherry produces flavors that are rich and sweet, without a trace of tartness.

Regina

A large, dark red cherry. This variety produces firm fruit with a mild sweet, aromatic flavour and a good balance of sugar and acid.

Simone

A large, heart shaped red cherry. This variety has firm, juicy flesh of excellent quality.

Sweet Georgia

Sweetheart

A large, heart-shaped, bright red cherry which has a mild and sweet flavour with outstanding firmness.

Grapes

These large seedless black are elongated, with firm blue black skin rewarding with a crunchy bite. The sweet yellow flesh is seedless, and these superb grapes can be enjoyed fresh from the vine
