3rd generation Family farm and wholesale production nursery
Various Citrus Varieties
TheM7, Chislett Summer Navel and Rohde Navel are all superior navel cultivars owned by Chislett Developments Pty Ltd. While the M7 and Chislett were bred by Greg Chislett, the rights to the Rohde were purchased, as the variety was seen to have outstanding characteristics that had gone unnoticed.
Our company has established our own wine label, “Regent Wines”, named after the spectacular and endangered Regent Parrot which frequents our property.
The selected grapes are hand harvested, fermented and bottled at a boutique winery near Romsey in Victoria.

In the Orchard
The 2012 season has seen more highs than lows as the season started with the M7 fruit being sold at Marks and Spencers in the UK, followed by a return to the good old days of high returns for Imperial Mandarins.
Lombardi poplars grafted onto non-suckering rootstock are ideal for orchard windbreaks.
Our poly tree guards, manufactured in Australia to our specifications, are white on the outside to reflect the sun and black on the inside.
Fruit from the orchard is hand harvested into plastic bulk bins and transported to Mildura Fruit Company.
Available September to January, our avocados are hand harvested into plastic bulk bins, graded and packed.
