Where can I find more information about growing citrus in New Zealand?

Our free publication Growing Citrus in NZ – A practical guide has a wealth of information covering everything from planting to harvest, including which cultivars to select, orchard and business management, pruning, pest and disease control. Download it here: Growing Citrus in NZ – A practical guide . We also recommend that you get advice from a specialist horticultural consultant.

For information on dealing with pests, see the Citrus Integrated Pest Management Manual. This reference guide enables growers to identify problems and the most effective fixes. The manual is available online through our members portal.

For specialist advice on growing lemons, see the Lemon Growing Manual produced in 2004 by NSW DPI for Citrus Australia.

Readers are reminded that this Manual was published in 2001 and has not been updated since that time.
