Kiwifruit Orchards

Orchard Manager Ray Gordon was employed in 2017 and was primeraly responsible for mangaement of the Haywood orchards. As the new G3 orchard's are starting to produce Ray is also resposible for themanagement of those. 

Ray has achieved another good year’s income, although due to the long, wet winter last year followed by an extremely dry summer fruit numbers, particularly with our Hayward-green were down compared to last year and later to harvest. The good news was most of our G3- gold fruit achieved early start that boosted our returns. There was excellent TZG, taste however, in some blocks our reject rate was quite high due to ‘sooty mould’ which again wasn’t helped by the weather enabling this disease to grow more than previous years.
