Growing Envy™

divider
Across both hemispheres, over three continents, enthusiastic orchard growers take a special pride in their Envy™ apples, which are grown with just the right amount of balance and patience.

Growing Practices

Envy™ was born using natural plant-breeding methods, crossing between Braeburn with Royal Gala apples, we have taken full advantage of the best nature has to offer. The result is pure bliss, heightened enjoyment like no other.

A handpicked team of talented growers who simply fell in love after one bite have planted trees in prime growing locations, using world-class growing methods to deliver a superior apple from field to market.

Our growers in these quite rural communities share the same environmentally purposeful growing techniques that are the envy of our industry. Integrated Fruit Production, or IFP for short, but they would prefer to call it “common sense.” It’s a difference you can taste in our apples, no matter what end of the earth they come from.

We’re excited about the enormous growth potential of Envy, It’s a rockstar performer for growers! For more than 50 years, our family has been growing apples, grapes and tomatoes on fertile land nestled across the Heretaunga plains, next to the Ngaruroro river in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. Along with this history of knowledge and perfect growing environment, we have great passion for the world’s best growing practices and utilization of technology, which allows us to scale up production to stay ahead of the ever-increasing demand for Envy.

We are third generation orchardists here in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand and we have been growing Envy for over 10 years now. We were one of the first ones to grow this beautiful fruit, and we take great pride and joy in continuing to grow Envy. Beautiful appearance with amazing sweetness and crunch, really makes this apple the best apple to eat and grow. Good fertile soil in the plains of Hawke’s Bay along with great climate and weather conditions, helps us to grow the perfect Envy to be sent around the World.

We heard there was another apple with the same parentage as the JAZZ™, a Gala/Braeburn cross but still a totally different apple, and they had pictures of it from New Zealand. And I raised my hand as quick as I could, so to speak. I wanted to get it out into the orchards to see what it was going to perform like. Right away, you see its growth habits and it looked like it was exactly what we needed. There was nothing out there like it in terms of a firm, sweet apple. I don’t think there’s anything that touches it in terms of the density of its flesh and sweetness.
