Opou Stonefruit

We are a small artisan orchard growing delicious tree ripened peaches and nectarines. Our dream to own our own property began in the 1980s. Our philosophy: to provide delicious fruit grown locally that could be left to ripen naturally on the trees that we and our friends could enjoy. It is picked at the last possible moment to bring out the best flavour and colour.

Demand grew and we continued to expand selling pre –ordered fruit and running a PYO and gate sale business in the weekend. The Market became an extension of this and allowing us to connect more directly with those purchasing the fruit. Many of the varieties are delicate and not commercially viable as their soft skin and juicy flesh make them difficult to handle. Especially the white fleshed peaches, best enjoyed soon after purchase We limit our time at the market from the end of Nov to mid-January when hopefully the weather is kind enough to ripen the fruit with a range of white and yellow nectarines and white peaches for sale.

Our stand is usually at the Stout st end of the market near the seating-often near the boysenberries but blink and you’ll miss us till next season.
