Ruby red and crispy sweet, Ruby Star is a variety exclusive to Golden Bay Fruit. Born and bred in 1952 in our family-owned orchards in Motueka, New Zealand. Its deep red shiny skin and the juicy flavour bursting from each bite ensure it is a favourite in many markets. Like all gems, this indulgent eating experience is a great keeper.

How to use Ruby Star
These apples are perfect for baking and cooking as they hold their shape and don’t release a lot of liquid making them ideal for tarts and pies. They can also be enjoyed in salads or simply snacking. A great storing apple.
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.
