The Original Horopito - Fragrant, Spicy and Naturally Wild.
A Sprinkle of Horopito
Horopito is an incredibly unique herb with a spicy, aromatic and earthy taste. A 'native food' that was embraced by the European settlers for its medicinal properties and alternative for nightshade allergies.
Horopito (Pseudowintera Colorata) is only found in New Zealand. The oldest flowering plant surviving 65 million years with a superb polygodial defense system. Horopito is loaded with antioxidants that has enabled it to evolve through climate change.

Dean Fountain and Nathan Wallace grow and harvest NZ native horopito and kawakawa on private property at the base of Mt Ruapehu igniting world cuisine with their native herbs. Rhayne (named after Dean's daughter) is keen to have horopito on every dinner table over the coming years.
