Why New Zealand?

New Zealand prides itself on being a clean, green and fresh environment – so where better to grow and harvest Smitten™ for its first introduction to the world? New Zealand’s climate provides the warm summers and crisp sharp winters needed for Smitten™ to ripen naturally on the tree, intensifying the texture and flavour that have been created through world class research and great parentage – produceofnewzealand.org

Seventeen Ltd are proud to be able to take this new variety from its beginnings in New Zealand and introduce it to the rest of the world.
