CUTRI FRUIT has two different growing locations; the inaugural property at Woorinen and the more recently acquired property at Wood Wood, another 30km away. Both are in the Swan Hill area, in North-West Victoria, on the banks of the mighty Murray River. Due to the farms' close proximity to the River, water supply is not an issue.
Both locations have superior growing conditions, with Wood Wood’s soil being some of the best in the district. The region is renowned for its high penetration rates of the sun and high chill units, ensuring high brix (sweetness) levels and optimal colour, size & flavour of the fruit. Due to the excellent growing conditions in this region, our fruit is some of the earliest high-chill stone fruits to come into production each season.
The business currently has over 650 acres of nectarines, peaches, apricots and plums planted and has capacity for a further 300 acres.
Radio-wave technology is in place across the properties to feed back vital information to the Irrigation and Farm Managers as well as to the central computer in order to be able to monitor the precise needs of the trees.
Cutri Fruit is leading the way in automated stone fruit tree fertigation and nutrigation, and is constantly seeking to improve itself to be a truly world-class business.
CUTRI FRUIT is able to manage all aspects of tree health, due to the fact we also have our own nursery, allowing us to grow the trees from rootstock in a healthy and controlled manner.
Cutri Fruit has strict quality control measures in place throughout the entire life of the tree to maintain optimal levels of tree health, with minimal use of chemicals, which ultimately results in greater nutrition for the consumer.
