Jazz – Always Refreshing

New Zealand-born and raised Jazz apples have now arrived in stores across the country. Recently judged New Zealand’s Best Apple of 2018 by Seven Sharp, Jazz is grown by T&G Global (formerly Turners and Growers) and partner growers in Hawkes Bay, Gisborne, Nelson and Central Otago.

Freshly-picked premium Jazz, a natural cross between Royal Gala and Braeburn, are a hard-skinned and crisp, juicy bi-colour apple. It has the shape and sweetness of a Royal Gala combined with the fresh, tangy flavour of a Braeburn creating an always refreshing sensation. Its dense, crunchy white flesh makes it a hit with apple lovers of all ages. And it’s slow-browning, making it even more appealing for longer.

Jazz underwent a global brand refresh last year with a new eye-catching PLU and packaging that immediately leaps out of the retail environment.

Superb Herb has some new ‘mini’ and ‘micro’ products to add to their already extensive range.

First is the Mini Basil.  This Basil variety has miniature leaves that are great for turning average meals into amazing ones.  The small leaves save the process of chopping and are great to scatter as a garnish.  A beautiful plant for your kitchen windowsill, this variety has improved shelf-life and is in-demand from discerning home-cooks.

Crazy Peas! Superb Herb’s first micro-green.  They get their name from the crazy way they look and because people go crazy for them.  Now home cooks can re-create the café-style food they have been enjoying with these pea-tendrils.  Sweet and crunchy, they are great for stir-fries, sandwiches, soups and amazing garnishes.  Crazy Peas have an excellent shelf life and once cut, they will regrow quickly for a second use.

These two new products are proving very popular.  Contact sean@superbherb.co.nz for more info.

For too long kiwis have embellished salads with dull, perfectly round, always red, sometimes floury, boring tomatoes. Beekist Chef’s Selection and Sunshine Mix tomatoes, ditch the old uniform presentation of yesteryear and add an injection of shape, size, colour and flavour to everyone’s dishes. Diversity should be celebrated, and just like people, no two tomatoes should be considered the same.

Delicious and unique, tomatoes come in all different shapes, sizes and colours and each has its own natural taste sensation. Sweet or tangy. Subtle or savoury. Enjoy tomatoes the way nature intended, by bringing either a Beekist Tomato Chef’s Selection or Sunshine Mix to the table. With a pop of colour and taste, they will provide a welcome interruption not only to the eye but the palate too. What’s more, they are also a rich source of Vitamin C.
