Products and Varieties
Montague share a passion for stonefruit varieties. Over the past 10 years, Montague has introduced over 50 new cultivars of nectarines, peaches, plums and apricots into Australia. Sourced from breeding programs in California and Spain, Montague have selected each stonefruit variety for its superior flavour, expressible juice and large size.
In order to commercialise these varieties, Montague has developed two stonefruit brands, CROC EGGS and the MONTAGUE tree. Each of these brands carry a range of new varieties selected by Montague and are available to Australian and overseas consumers from November to May each year.
