Event details

Remuera has been home to more than a dozen Chinese fruiterers since the 1920s. In Remuera, Jack Lum & Co continues the tradition of selling high-quality fruit and vegetables.

The 2018 publication of 'Fruits of our Labours: Chinese Fruit Shops in New Zealand' includes the contributions of these Remuera fruiterers, families and their descendants.
