At Grower Outlet, we know the value of hard work, commitment, and love for the land. Our journey started with a simple yet powerful mission: to bring the freshest, most delicious fruit directly from our orchards to your doorstep. We work the land, nurture our trees, handpick the best fruit, and carefully pack and dispatch them to you - all in a day’s work.

Quality From The Ground Up

As growers, we have the privilege of overseeing every step of the process, ensuring quality is maintained from the moment the seedlings are planted to the time the fruits are harvested and packed. This intimate knowledge and control over the growing process guarantee that our fruits are second to none in taste, nutrition, and freshness.

Here are our most frequently asked questions:

What variety of avocados do you sell?

At this time of year we sell the Hass variety of avocados. We also sell Reed avocados when in season.

What is the best way to ripen the avos?

Our avocados are picked and packed fresh from the tree to ensure that our customers receive the best quality produce available. However, to see what you can do to get the best out of your fruit, you can visit our "Ripening Tips" here.

How long does delivery take?

We know how much our customers love their avos so we do our best to get them to you as soon as we possibly can. In most cases your order will be dispatched either on the same day or the day after the order was placed (excluding weekends). Orders placed on Friday may not be processed until the following Monday.

We then place the box in the care of our courier service, Post Haste. Please allow up to 7 working days for delivery to non-rural addresses or 9 days for rural addresses (although in most cases you can expect your order to arrive much sooner that this!). Because the avos are picked fresh, they will still be in great condition when they arrive.

What's the difference between these and the supermarket avocados?

There really is no comparison! Ours are picked fresh from the orchard and are handled by the picker and the packer. Supermarket avos can go through a dozen sets of hands before they make it to their shelves. After that, another dozen pair of hands will likely poke, prod and squeeze your avocado before it finally lands in your shopping trolley. Also, supermarkets often sell 2nd or 3rd grade avocados while the best ones go to the export market. We pick ours from the trees, pack them in a box, and send them to you.

How does the subscription service work?

If you love avocados but don't want the hassle of having to place individual orders every time you run out, then our subscription service would be a great option.

Sign up to a subscription and we'll ensure that you get regular hassle-free deliveries of avocados straight to your doorstep at an interval that is convenient for you.

When you are on the product page, instead of selecting "One-off Order" select "Subscribe" and you will see a dropdown of frequency options. You can choose weekly, fortnightly, 3-weekly or monthly. You go through and place the order and then you'll receive your first box straight away. Your future boxes will be delivered based on the frequency of your choice. 

Subscriptions can be paused or cancelled at any time so there are no fixed-term contracts for you to worry about.

How do I make changes to my subscription or update my personal information?

When you start your subscription you'll be given the option to create an account. It's worthwhile taking the time to set this up as this will give you full control over your subscription and allow you to make any changes you want. This includes adding or removing products, or skipping and rescheduling your future orders. It also allows you to update your personal information including your shipping address and credit card information.

If you already have a subscription and would like to create an account, you can do this by clicking on the following link (hint: make sure you use the same email address that we use to contact you on via email): signing up for an account 

Shipping. Where to and how much?

We can deliver delicious avocados to just about every corner of the country with the exception of Great Barrier Island and Waiheke Island. 

For our avocado lovers in the South Island, this means you can now get your avo fix without having to deal with the retail piracy at your local supermarket.
