Proximity Durban port (approx. 150km) gives the farm a competitive advantage in the export market. Eshowe produces superior quality fruit in the northern part of the country, suited for export.
The Nkwaleni valley has summer rainfall, with a warm and humid climate during summers and cool dry winters. These conditions are particularly suitable to produce lemons and grapefruits. The climate and quality of the orchards delivers a better than average pack-out percentage of the produce. Due to location, timing and quality, the farm is particularly attractive to supply the Middle East and Far East markets.
