Gisborne is currently a 'recovery region' for Psa–V. Riversun Nursery currently meets the requirements to sell plants certified under the Kiwifruit Plant Certification Scheme (KPCS) “Restricted Certification’ which means plants can only be moved to Psa-V positive orchards, within our region or other 'recovery regions' in the North Island only. We are unable to ship to 'exclusion or containment regions'.

More information on regional classifications, including maps, is available on the KVH website.

We deliver grafted kiwifruit vines in Summer (December-January) and Winter (June-August): 

  • Vines delivered and planted in summer are ready to grow once planted, but need irrigation available straight away and will need constant maintenance to keep up with training. As conditions are warmer they are less prone to Psa-V.
  • Vines delivered and planted in winter are dormant - so are easier to handle, less prone to damage and easier to store if there are delays in planting.

All plants are transported in covered trucks in accordance with KVH Protocol for Nursery Stock.
