New Zealand enjoys a unique temperate climate suitable for growing a wide range of exciting subtropical fruits. Many were initially grown on a cottage, backyard industry basis but strong international demand has driven commercial production.
Our subtropical range includes tamarillos, passionfruit, feijoas, figs and persimmons. Freshmax offers all these subtropical fruits for sale in New Zealand and to all corners of the globe by air or seafreight services.
New Zealand Growing Regions
Subtropicals are mainly grown in the North Island in Northland, Auckland, Bay of Plenty and Taranaki regions and the top of the South Island. We secure continuity of supply by sourcing fruit throughout each season from complementary growing regions.
|Tamarillos||Red, Gold and Amber|
|Figs||Brown Turkey, Adriatic, Black Mission|
|Feijoa||Apollo, Mammoth and others|
|Persimmon||Fuyu (non astringent)|
Products are packed to meet individual market requirements to ensure optimum fruit arrival condition, whether for NZ or export orders. These include single layer trays with pocket packs, bulk cartons, and re-useable crates.
