New Zealand Pipfruit

An ideal climate, New Zealand's warm, dry summers and cool winters provide an ideal growing climate for apples and pears. The apple tree thrives in locations that have a distinct winter period (the tree must have a dormancy period of at least 1200 hours per year under 7.2ºC) and a dry, warm summer with intense sunshine.

Many areas of New Zealand have the climate and soil fertility ideally suited for growing apples. The country's clean, clear water and a pollution-free atmosphere ensure a freshness and quality that's second to none.
