As passionate growers, P’Petual are leaders in their field, continually researching and trialling new varieties to ensure they’re growing and supplying the best produce available to market (with a few fresh, healthy and new varietal surprises along the way). We’re so in love we’re stocking the entire AusFresh P’Petual range.
