APPLES

Apples are picked fresh for our store during the apple season, so they are always at their peak for flavour, texture and crunch.

When not in season, apples are stored in our high-tech controlled atmosphere cool rooms. They are one of the few fruit that can be stored safely and retain their quality, even after a few months in storage.

We open our coolrooms just as the fruit is ready to eat — so they are always crunchy and taste great.

  • Royal Gala — February to September
  • Jonathan January to June
  • Golden Delicious February to August
  • Red Chief February to December
  • Fuji March to October
  • Pink LadyTM  April to February

PERSIMMONS

persimmons in box

 We grow the non-astringent and most popular variety, Fuyu.

Persimmons are lovely and sweet, yet crunchy like an apple. In fact, you eat then like and apple!

If you have not tried one, you are in for a treat.

They are available from mid-May to the end of July.

BERRIES

blackberries

When in season, we have a range of fresh berries in store. 

It's a short season for the various berries, and they don't last long; so get in early when berries are in season.

 STONE FRUIT
