Fruit Stalls in Horotane Valley


Nothing says summer like fresh straight off-the-tree apricots and plums! I came home with a big bag of plums from the orchard above and a bag of apricots from the orchard pictured below.


If you are wondering where Horotane Valley is – it’s a small valley within a valley – as it’s in the Heathcote Valley. You can get there from Port Hills Road – just look for the sign.


You’ve got to be in quick! The fruit was flying off the shelves with car loads of people coming and going.


I’ve already eaten quite a few of the apricots and the plums. Am also tempted to try out making jam for the very first time. Sounds sticky and messy, but about time I gave it ago I think.

    My two favourite fruits and also my favourites when made into jam. Just go for it Michelle. Personally I am not a jam maker but I have a friend who does, marmalade too.
