Sunshine capital G3 opportunity


Do you want to live in the sunshine capital of New Zealand, just a few kilometres from Ohope voted best beach in New Zealand 2021? This very special package situated on the outskirts of Whakatane has a total land area of 6.07 hectares and offers a bit of everything with a three bedroom, two bathroom family home with decking to invite the morning sun to your breakfast table. The comfortable home is well sheltered and is surrounded by a wide variety of fruit trees including figs, feijoas, guavas and the classics such as pears, apples and apricots. A couple of handy sheep paddocks complete the package and give it that distinctive lifestyle appeal that can be hard to find in the currently fast paced property market. The property has a versatile array of shedding and boasts a good central accessway with an excellent loadout area. The water supply comes from a bore, for which consent is in place until November 2034. The younger blocks come complete with sprinkler irrigation and frost protection is provided by a wind machine. The orchard itself consists of 2.83can/ha of G3 kiwifruit. 1.58can/ha was stump grafted, whilst the balance of 1.25can/ha of G3 grafted vines were planted in 2018. Take a look around the property and it's easy to see that the vines have been very well looked after and the 'strung' teepees are loaded with good canopy cover for next year's anticipated big production increase. The balance of the G3 is heavily in crop and an early start is the name of the game here in Leader Road, as the picking date is looking positive for mid March picking. With approximately 1.45can/ha of Hayward there are some good options ahead to graft the Hayward to G3 or Zespri Red if this appeals. The Hayward is currently performing well and with sales of green kiwifruit offshore ending well last season optimism is on the up for our trusty stalwart. This orchard and home is an absolute little cracker.
