It's the star attraction!

Premier Star was first discovered in 1999 on a home orchard in Nelson, one of New Zealand’s premier apple growing regions.

The apple was granted a Plant Variety Right (PVR) in 2007 and the first, small commercial volumes of Premier Star were planted.

Glowing market feedback from the first export shipments in 2011 saw a bigger uptake of commercial plantings across hand selected growers in Nelson and also in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand’s largest apple growing region.
