January News

While things are progressing well at the Achacha plantations and we’ve been working very  hard on some new things, the season has been topsy-turvy. The fruit is almost ready to start harvesting.  Many varieties of mangoes and other tropical fruit in the region were late too and some crops have been very low, which is a blow for growers. The Achachas are taking on the orange colour and a trial pick will be done next week to make sure we are on track.  A lot of streamlining has been done to the packing line. General cleaning, reorganising and other preparation has also been done in the packing shed in readiness for the busy season ahead.

Our online sales will recommence once the fruit has been delivered to Sydney.

Choose from the large boxes for families and real Achacha afficionados as well as smaller gift boxes for birthdays or special occasions.

We’ll try to keep you up-todate as best we can on where the Achachas will be available.  Join our Facebook and enter the monthly ‘win a 5 kilo Achacha box competition’. Or come to see us at Everleigh Markets in Sydney and we’ll be very happy to have a chat.

As this is being written many people are suffering the extreme heat and bushfires.  We trust you, your families and friends are safe and well. Maybe some Achachas will lift the spirit!
