Welcome To Golden Grove Orchard

Golden Grove Citrus Orchard is located 14km along the Chittering Road, north-east from Bullsbrook off Great Northern Highway, 60km from Perth.


The Orchard is situated amidst the undulating hills of the Chittering Valley, where high quality citrus is grown. It consists of over 13,000 trees, containing three varieties of Summer oranges(Valencia). These are best from August to May. During the hot weather January to March a green tinge is present on the skin. This does not affect the taste.


During the Winter and Spring (peak season for citrus harvest) there are six varieties of Navel oranges including a Red flesh navel. We have Seville oranges, great for marmalade, also a low acid orange that is very popular for tropical tastes and is non-allergic for people who cannot normally eat oranges. Low acid orange is also known by the following names in other countries.

Indonesian Name (Jeruk Pontianak)

Tamil Name (Satlue Kodi)

Indian Musambi (Sweet Lime)

Vietnames (KanOrange)

Thialand (Sam)

Bangladesh (Bidhan)

Burmese (Boordan Burtakal)

Other citrus varieties include Lemons, Limes, Grapefruit (Red flesh) and we still grow white flesh grapefruit and the most popular crop Mandarins (several varieties). These crops are only available in Winter and Spring - June to October in Western Australia.
