Best time to find fruit picking work in Devonport

Devonport is best known for growing a range of vegetables, with the best months from January to June.

From July to December you may be able to find work, but it is not known as a peak season. During these months I recommend you organise a job before you get there, otherwise you may find that there is no work available.

A range of other crops are grown in the area, however the availability of work in these crops is limited. The best time of year to try to find work in one of these other crops is between December to April.
