Description

Kiwifruit - Green or Gold?


The foundation is here - kiwifruit rootstock planted and room for more - a golden opportunity to complete the vision and secure a lifestyle by Tauranga Harbour.

Total land is 3.3ha - partly developed with around 560 rootstock plants; no spray used during set up as the intention was organic. Formerly all in citrus, remnants remain in other parts of the orchard - waiting to be developed. There are three main blocks, well sheltered, east/west sun and gorgeous views across the estuary to the Kaimais.

Tucked at the end of a country road, off Turner Road between Aongatete and Omokoroa, the land is a gentle sloping contour down to the water. Direct access lets you launch the dinghy and head out to Tauranga Harbour to cherish the peace and quiet here.

It's a charming spot with potential. Aerial shots highlight a prime horticultural belt along this peninsula - kiwifruit, avocados and citrus all proof of the area's worth.

Buildings include a partially renovated three bedroom cottage, double lock-up garage, large implement shed and more shedding at the back of the house and in the orchard. Town water is available on site.

With work begun converting this property to kiwifruit, the opportunity to finish the job should have great appeal. It would suit an orchardist wanting rootstock for grafting. It's an ideal entry block, while developers should also see potential here - to continue kiwifruit or create a mixed orchard with avocados.
