Pounamu Peak Orchard was the first orchard we purchased, in February 2015. Other than us, there are five partners. The orchard is at a higher altitude on No 3 Road Te Puke. It has 5.67 hectares of Hayward, 0.91 hectares of Gold3 in conversion and 0.50 hectares of kiwiberries.
Production is well above average with good dry matter and size. Harvest is typically late May with fruit storage being targeted. Mount Pack and Cool Ltd packs the crop.
During the 2015 winter, the wooden pergola was replaced with heavy duty AgBeam to support the increased crop load experienced. There are no other major capital investments required.
The Partnership owns Zespri Group Ltd shares in proportion to production.
There are no investment opportunities in this orchard.
