Mother Nature provides the perfect conditions in Ceres to grow the perfect fruit.

Tucked under a blanket of soft, white snow, the cold winters ensure that the trees enter a deep hibernation, getting the rest that’s needed to bear such delicious produce.

Ceres awakens in spring and this season brings the entire valley to life, with birds soaring above the trees and butterflies dancing through the orchards.

Ample winter rains make it a wonderful fruit growing area and the snow during winter keeps temperatures low, while fruit trees are in their rest period.

Due to Ceres’s inland location, the summer season reaches some of the warmest temperatures in the Western Cape and the heat helps ripen and sweeten the fruit, making it perfect for juice.
