Here in South Africa's northernmost region, the long and dry summer days produce ideal conditions for growing Naval and Valenica oranges. Eureka lemons thrive here too.

We nurture 100 hectare acres of citrus, each tree having taken approximately five years to bear fruit for the first time. Irrigation is delivered by micro - jet, the water quality being carefully monitored. Soil and leaf samples are taken on a regular basis, while all fertilizer use is recommended and monitored by qualified advisors, where possible bio - enrichment nutrients are used.

While the orchards are sanatized on a regular basis, an integrated crop protection programme to limit the use of chemicals is also in place.
