How does the fruit tree finder work?

The Fruit Tree Finder is based on feedback from our fruit tree experts in answering customer inquiries, and goes through a similar process to what they do to find the most suitable varieties for a particular requirement.

It first ranks all our varieties using criteria such as climate suitability, disease-resistance, flavour, popularity and several other factors. It then produces a short-list of the most suitable varieties for you to choose from.
