This is our first stop on the way to Mount Cook, a stop for restrooms and to get some fruits/coffee/ice cream. Visitors may sample the fruits before purchasing. On our return trip from Mount Cook, the bus made another stop here and we bought more fruits. The fruits can't be any more fresher elsewhere. Must stop here and must buy... More

We enjoyed the visit much. Several big tour buses stopped here during our short visit. They offer free fruit samples - a nice gesture. We loved the Golden Nuggets apricots so we bought a kilo. We also bought honey. The bad part : the cashier over charged us $25 for other fruits! She offered no apology and we were suspicious... More

We visited on a tour bus between destinations. The place was busy but the service and choice of fruit was excellent. Its also worth buying one of their fresh fruit ice creams yummy!!!!

Mrs. Jones Fruit Stand was full of many fruits and other goodies of New Zealand. Our stop was going fine until two large buses stopped and the stand suddenly got very busy. So if you see the items you wish to purchase don't wait too long as it is a popular tourist bus stop.

Team if you are in this area this is a must stop for the freshest and best quality stone fruit you can buy at reasonable prices. Cromwell is suppose to be the stone fruit capital of the south Island and this family business is certainly the best. Family business for 40 years and fruit grown locally in the paddocks surrounding... More

We travel to NZ every year and we always make it a point to stop here. Freshest fruit at a good price. We always pick up the cherries and apricots. And a bag of mixed fruit. They will also make you an ice cream with your favorite fruit. They have a good choice of dried fruit, vegetables and Manuka honey.... More

We loved it, but not so much the crowd of people. Even though it was super crowded, we were able to enjoy looking around at the beautiful fruits and vegetables. We had some terrific cherry ice cream, and sampled the port wines. They were all wonderful which made it difficult deciding which ones to buy. We wandered the grounds a... More

The kids absolutely LOVED the ice cream here...we back more than once. There was a huge variety of fruit, veg, and other foods. Around the corner of the shop is a tasting area for their wine and ports, and an absolutely stunning rose garden.
