Taranaki region, New Zealand

Avocados could be a good crop for Oanui

A small coastal Taranaki community could one day become known for its avocados. Oanui, 8 kilometres north of Opunake, was identified in last year's Taranaki Land and Climate Assessment as being an area suitable for growing the fruit.

Next month, representatives from the avocado industry will be in New Plymouth for a seminar on growing the fruit commercially. Although the main avocado growing regions are in Northland and the Bay of Plenty, areas of Taranaki, including Oanui, were also suitable for the crop, Venture Taranaki chief executive Justine Gilliland said: “Avocados are a proven success story in other parts of the country, so it is worth consideration and further investigation in Taranaki.”
