about our kernels
our kernels are 100% Australian GROWN
The varieties of apricots grown in Australia are different to those grown overseas. Each variety produces kernels with vastly different characteristics, which includes, size, shape, oil content, as well as amygdalin and other nutrient profiles.
Additionally, the growing standards and processing methods found overseas, are very different. The processing methods most often employed in large-scale operations ultimately destroy the viability of the seed. The embryo, found at the very tip of the kernel, is the most delicate portion of the seed. The embryo determines a seed's health and viability.
We deal with a number of orchards across the Riverland region from New South Wales to South Australia. Our kernels are so lovely and fresh they can be sprouted for propagation or for those who prefer an activated kernel.
You can't get fresher than a living seed!
