Summerfruit thrives in areas with hot summers and cool winters, and we have growers in the Top of the South that produce stone fruit (mostly cherries) and berries.


There are several large cherry producers in Marlborough who become busy around December (ready for Christmas!). A variety of berry farms are located in the Tasman district.
