How to use Miranda

Miranda is amazing for juicing. It is also great as a snack and in a salad. Plus is suitable for baking and cooking.

At the Core

Born and bred in Motueka, New Zealand, this newly named “Miranda” apple is a chance seedling, which was not bred intentionally, but just appeared in nature. Chance seedlings rarely result in commercially viable fruit, but Miranda is set to be an exception. Grown exclusively by Golden Bay Fruit, Miranda is an early harvest variety. More plantings have been made across GBF orchards in Motueka.

Health & Nutrition

Nature’s own health foods are grown in rich New Zealand soils, sustained with pure water and kissed by the sun. Packed with flavour and juice, they also pack a nutritious punch.

Storage Tips

While sunlight is an integral ingredient in growing our fruit, it is not wanted to keep them fresh. Store your apples in the coldest part of your fridge around one or two degrees Celsius (35 degrees Fahrenheit). If storing an entire box, keep in a cool, dark place.
