We get a little fruity on day 12 of the tour as we stop off next to a massive piece of Kiwifruit. This local icon stands at the entrance to Kiwi360, an orchard/café/function centre situated a few kilometres to the east of the town of Te Puke.
It’s hard to miss really and well worth a quick look before speeding off towards Tauranga. So that’s what we did.
Te Puke is home to Te Puke United AFC.
