Producer Information

Grown by Tasty Tamarillos, a boutique tamarillo orchard situated in tropical Northland. These gorgeous fruit are lovingly grown using organic manure and organic practices where possible. Sadly up to 90 percent of the orchard succumbed to the devastating psyllid bug that entered New Zealand from North America so the growers have had to resort to using chemical sprays to save their orchard. With a preference for organic and minimally processed food themselves, the growers are very conscious about using the chemicals as sparingly as possibly and the fruit are never sprayed during harvest season.
