Apollo invests in Jazz™
Since its release as a new variety just a few years ago, Jazz™ has enjoyed a sensational response from marketers, retailers and consumers around the world.
Jazz™ was bred from a cross between two of the world's most successful varieties, Royal Gala and Braeburn. Both of these apples were also breed in New Zealand.
With its beautiful colour, fantastic flavour and amazing crunch, Apollo, like many others who have experienced the Jazz™ sensation, are convinced it is world class.
Already, Apollo Horticulture has extensive plantings of Jazz™ based on the proven European growing system for intensive plantings. This system has also been used extensively in Nelson and is giving impressive production and fruit quality within a few years from planting.
Jazz™ trees in the new Apollo orchards are planted just over a metre apart, and some rows are up to one kilometre long. Specialist care and attention to detail is required to ensure top quality fruit and high yields. A huge investment has been made in land, trees, materials and specialist advice to ensure the success of this new venture.
Jazz™ is marketed exclusively by ENZA and is packed in it's own unique brand of packaging. Apollo Pac is an official ENZA Partner and is one the few post harvest facilities selected by ENZA to both pack and store Jazz™.
