How to use NZ Queen
At the Core
Unique to New Zealand, NZ Queen is aptly named as its heritage is from a cross of Royal Gala and Splendour. NZ Queen is recognizable by its natural russet over a deep red skin colour. The flavour of this variety also has subtle notes of pear and banana, with a light, fruity aroma. NZ Queen has gone on to capture the taste buds of consumers in much of Asia.
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.
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.
