Richards' Orchard Fruit Stall  

CLOSED due to COVID19 situation from 7pm Tuesday March 24 until further notice

Our roadside stall sells heritage and tree-ripened eating and cooking apples, pears, plums, zwetschen, damsons, quinces and greengages (in season). We are open daily from mid-January until about July/August.

Grandfather bought the orchard in 1944, and it is still family owned and operated. We specialise in great taste and hard-to-find apples. You get to bag your own fruit, so you can pick 'n' mix. In peak season (March/April/May) we have up to 20 varieties of apples to buy.

In response to the COVID-19 virus situation:

  • We are CLOSED from 7pm Tuesday March 24th until further notice

To reduce environmental waste associated with the stall, we:

  • Use thicker types of plastic bags that can be reused
  • Have the option for you to bring your own supermarket bag or banana box for apple/pears/quinces (main season only)
  • Re-purpose used cardboard for our signs
  • Compost or use discarded fruit for animal food
  • Do not use a cool store or transport fruit; we sell our fruit on-site

We occasionally sell scion wood and apples for juice or cider. Scion orders open in about MAY, so that we can cut to order in June.

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.
