      Hi Peter, We sell and courier our tamarillos throughout New Zealand. Currently we don’t have any tamarillos available but we hope to have some available in mid April. I will send out an email when the tamarillos are ready to all our existing customers.Currently we are in negotiation with the courier company regarding freight costs so I can’t say what the freight cost will be to Gore; sadly rural customers will have to pay more than urban customers. The cost of our tamarillos will remain the same – Premium grade $10/kg, Standard grade $8/kg and Saucing grade $6/kg. Sorry I can’t be more helpful at this stage. Kind Regards Raewyn

    I am wanting to make Tam Chutney and have not tried this before. Can you tell me the best time of year to get Tams for this?
    Thanks, Toni

      Hi Toni, tamarillo season is due to start next month, May. I would look at purchasing tamarillos in June when they are more plentiful.
