What makes New Zealand’s Central Otago apricots the best in the world?
- Our climate
- Bred in New Zealand for New Zealand conditions, NZsummer 2, 3 and 4 are perfectly suited to the climatic conditions of Central Otago. We also grow Kioto variety apricots.
- Great shelf life
- Two varieties store longer than other apricots due to an ethylene-recessive gene and are therefore suited to the export market.
- Amazing attributes
- Our apricots are super sweet with low acidity and have an appealing bright colour. They are firm, yet juicy in texture – all attributes our customers desire in apricots!
