New Zealand’s unique combination of warm summer sunshine, crisp winter frosts and clean pure waters allow our apples to ripen slowly, naturally and with the absolute minimum of human intervention. Because of this, they develop a naturally crisp texture and intense flavour.


Breeze™ is New Zealand's earliest apple to be harvested. It gives buyers the opportunity to be the first to launch the New Zealand season. It’s early, red and sweet.
Breeze is aromatic and very crisp.  Harvested at optimum maturity from the rich soils and warm climate of New Zealand, Breeze encapsulates the perfect combination of apple traits.

Sonya apple


The Shape of temptation

When you bite into a Sonya apple be prepared for an explosion of sweet juicy flavour. The Sonya is a relatively new apple, developed in the south island of New Zealand. The Sonya is a cross between a Red Delicious and Gala.

Sonya has two distinctive features. Firstly, its unusual shape - it is a very tall apple stemming from its parent Red Delicious. Sonya's other distinctive feature is its exceptional sweetness (even sweeter than Gala) - the flavour is strongly reminiscent of raw sugar cane blended with fruity flavour, and there is no trace of acidity whatsoever. Another great feature is it has exceptional storage and keeping qualities.

Sonya™. A heavenly spectrum of sweetness, crispness and fragrance

Royal Joburn™

The Royal Joburn is a wonderfully sophisticated apple. Its taste profile is similar to the much-loved Braeburn, although slightly sweeter. It is however distinctively different in that it offers a beautiful full red blush.

It is crisp, without being hard, and is very juicy. It snaps cleanly to the bite, and there is an immediate rush of strong apple flavours. The overall taste is sharp and refreshing with a good balance of sweetness that appeals to the apple connoisseur.
