Richards' Orchard Fruit Stall  

An Old-Fashioned Fruit Stall: Apples, Pears, Plums, Damsons, Zwetschen, Quinces. Bag your own, Pick 'n' mix, Free tastings. Open daily.

Our roadside stall sells heritage and tree-ripened eating and cooking apples, pears, plums, zwetschen, damsons, quinces and greengages. We are open daily from January until August/early September.

Our family orchard has been growing fruit since 1944. We have lots of old favourites and heritage varieties. We specialise in great taste and hard to find apple varieties. You get to bag your own fruit, so you can pick 'n' mix. Our free tastings are legendary. In peak season (March/April/May) we have up to 20 varieties of apples to buy and taste.

We occasionally sell scion wood and apples for juice or cider (email us if you are interested). But, sorry, we do not send fruit (so can't accept phone or mail orders for deliveries).

668 The Coastal Highway, near Bronte Road and Mapua. Look for the blue and white sign. Follow us on Facebook for updates on what is in the stall.
