Green Ume harvest now available to order! Good stocks is finally in our chiller and ready to ship. North Island orders I will send via NZPost Courier Overnight. South Island orders I will send via Aramex Courier as NZP is too expensive.

Parcel tracking will be provided once packed and ready to ship.
Please include your mobile contact in the delivery address details.
To ripen green Ume fruit for making Umeboshi or Ume syrup, just place the fruit in a wide bowl or tray and leave at room temperature for 3-4 days covered with a tea towel. They will ripen up quite quickly. Check daily and you can choose how ripe you want the Ume to be. As they ripen you will be able to smell the aroma coming off the ripening ume. For umeboshi the fruit to salt ratio is 15%. So 1,000g ume to 150g salt.
Thank you for your patience waiting for these to be available.
Arggh, Waitangi Day Tuesday 6th Feb - due to this being a public holiday (no couriers operating) I wont be able to ship your fresh Ume order until Wednesday 7th Feb. If I ship on Monday 5th, the parcel will just sit in depot.
