MolloyFarms specialises in the export of predominantly Pukekohe Longkeeper varieties to world markets.
NZ brown onions are famous all over the world for their long storage life, hardness, pungency and colour. The main variety, Pukekohe Longkeeper (PLK) was developed in the 1920’s from two Spanish varieties to suit NZ conditions. PLK is an open pollinated variety with a wide gene base that allows growers to progressively improve the variety. A variant, Pukekohe Early Longkeeper (ELK), also has excellent keeping qualities. There are other hybrid varieties grown for specific markets such as T400 for Japan. One of these varieties may better suit your requirements , so please enquire
Red onions are increasing in popularity all over the world especially as an ingredient to add colour and flavour to salad dishes. TV cooking programmes have been influential in this regard. We estimate that approximately 10% of total production in NZ is now red. The main varieties currently available are Red Emperor, Red Star, Red Wing, Red Bull, Red Keep and Red Company.
We can source other vegetables and fruit from Growers with whom we have personal relationships, so we can assure you of their quality, please enquire
