Event Details

New Zealand’s two big apple growers have just launched the country’s sweetest apple to the Asian markets, with first shipments arriving in China this week.

The new Posy apple is becoming popular in China as there is a demand for higher colour and sweeter apples.

Bostock New Zealand and Mr Apple have teamed up to exclusively grow and market Posy apples.

Bostock New Zealand owner John Bostock said it’s very exciting to finally have enough volume to export as the apple has taken about 20 years to develop.
