Riversun is a wholesale nursery and only supplies seedling and clonal avocado trees to commercial growers. Growers require a PPin from NZ Avocado Industry Ltd to purchase clonal trees which are subject to a royalty and also require a signed non-propagation agreement.

To place an order, first you’ll need to decide which rootstock and variety is suitable for your site. 

The team at Riversun can provide advice, or for independent advice you can talk to one of the consultants listed on the NZAGA website

This PPIN is used for traceability purposes and to hold historical data about your orchard. For more information visit the NZ Avocado Industry Ltd website or phone 0800 AVOCADO / 0800 286 2236.
