GISBORNE ORANGES

There are oranges and then there are Gisborne oranges. Our incomparable Navel oranges are loved throughout New Zealand. A winter orange, Navels are seedless, juicy, and easy to peel and segment. Our region has the perfect climate of sunny warm days and cool nights to be able to grow one of the world’s favourite fruits.

Our oranges are grown on trees we planted in 2003. We knew our soil comprised exceptionally fertile heavy silt loam, renowned in our district for growing just about anything, but it wasn’t until we started selling our oranges direct to customers that we realised just how remarkable they are. Flavoursome, juicy and bursting with goodness, they have to be tasted to be fully appreciated.

Our oranges store well at room temperature out of direct sunlight for a week, but will last much longer in the fridge where their vitamin content is undiminished.
