Avocados & Exotic Citrus
Peter and Caroline Cobb’s 35 hectare family farm at Nildottie is 100% pesticide and fungicide free. Naranja Orchards grow beautiful Hass avocados and citrus. Because they wanted to experiment, the Cobb family have branched out into more exotic citrus. Look out for fragrant Buddha’s hands and kaffir limes from February onwards. Peter and Caroline are always happy to give advice on which avocados are ready to use now versus those that will ripen in a few days. Ask them for hints on how to cook a Buddha’s hand or the best way to use kaffir lime.
Naranja Orchards take a break from the market between the end of the avocado season and the start of the citrus harvest because of low supply. We look forward to welcoming them back to the market in July. Find them outside every Sunday between July and February.
