Location & Growing Conditions

Located on the East Coast of New Zealand's North Island, Gisborne immediately springs to mind as the first city in the world to be touched by the rays of each new dawn. It's an honour that we treasure, but Gisborne is so much more than that.

In terms of horticulture we boast some of the best growing conditions in the world. The soils of  our fertile alluvial plains combine with a temperate climate to create premium growing conditions. It is Gisborne's warm summers, high sunshine hours and mild winters that provide ideal conditions for horticultural production and enable our growers to produce some of the best fruit and produce in the world.
