T&G Orchards, Hawkes’s Bay, New Zealand

Meet Deepa and Maurice; two integral members of the T&G family. They are both part of the T&G Global orchard management team who grow our JAZZ™ apples across the East Coast of the North Island of Aotearoa New Zealand. Together, they have over 16 years of experience nurturing JAZZ™ orchards to produce the famous sweet and tangy apple.

Deepa, who has been with us since 2017, manages the Meanee Sector in Hawke’s Bay while Maurice, who has been with us for more than a decade, oversees all T&G-owned orchards in the region, managing both our full-time staff and seasonal work teams.

Both Maurice and Deepa love living in the beautiful Hawke’s Bay. With hot sunny days and cooler nights, it’s not just the ideal climate to live in but also for growing JAZZ™.

Maurice shares that JAZZ™ is a firm favourite in his household. “The kids absolutely love the flavour, crunch and sweetness with that little bit of tanginess at the end” says Maurice.


Braiseworth, North Suffolk, UNITED KINGDOM

For nearly a quarter of a Century, Jeremy Linsell has been growing apples. Jeremy’s Grandfather had an orchard on his farm so orcharding is in his blood. Jeremy’s 22 hectare orchard is in the tiny parish of Braiseworth, near the town of Eye in North Suffolk.

“It was an easy decision to begin growing JAZZ™ 11 years ago. JAZZ™ has fantastic eating experience, reliability and an ability to store well. It’s hard work to ensure the thinning, pruning and nutrition of the trees are done to a very high standard. But it’s all worth it to make sure our customers are receiving apples of a fantastic eating experience. Those hard hours of care and attention are all worth it when you hear the positive feedback when someone tastes their first JAZZ™. I’m yet to hear anything negative.”


Monks Farm, Norton, North Kent, UNITED KINGDOM

Simon Bray owns a 39 hectare orchard and is a 3rd generation apple grower. With over 30 years apple growing experience comes a great passion to grow the best apples he can grow. Winning the ‘Nation’s Tastiest Apple’ at the 2014 National Fruit Show, Simon Bray is certainly achieving his goal.

“This amazing apple variety – it’s the “special one” of the orchard. Jazz has all the attributes a grower wants and when it comes to taste – people absolutely love it. I’m always really proud listening to consumers’ comments at the BBC Good Food Show.

The JAZZ apple store really well – even just in the fruit bowl. I love JAZZ apples fresh and can highly recommend it on as a perfect accompaniment to a cheese board.”


Willowford Alma Alta Orchard, Hawkes Bay, NEW ZEALAND

Phil and Kirsty Greer run a 40 hectare apple orchard in the Hawkes Bay, NZ. When Phil first tasted JAZZ he knew it was going to be a winner and over the years has converted 3/4 of his orchard to Jazz trees.

The Greers have 6 children who have all worked in the orchard at some point – picking, thinning, tractor driving, in their school or university holidays. “It’s a wonderful environment to raise your children; being surrounded by a strong community of growers that support each other like family.”

The Rowling Family

Moana Orchards, Tasman, Nelson, NEW ZEALAND

For over a century, four generations of Rowling family have been growing apples from their land which borders the Moutere Inlet between Tasman and Motueka. The family grows 80 hectares of apples and 10 hectares of pears.

Oliver Rowling was born and bred in the Nelson region and now operates the orchard which he co-owns with his father, Alan.

“Living on an orchard is a really great playground when you are young. Hard work, dedication, drive and a lot of passion has kept the business going all these years. I believe that if you are passionate about what you do then you will do it well; if you don’t love what you do then don’t do it,” explains Oliver.


Chenu (72), Loire Valley, FRANCE

2017 marks a hundred years of the Tessier family tending their land in the Loire Valley. Romain Tessier is 5th generation and his extensive knowledge and passion for apple growing makes him really proud of growing JAZZ™ apples. The daily care and dedication in growing the best possible apples for consumers around the world to enjoy.

“I grow JAZZ™ apples because of their great eating qualities, their crunchiness and their huge storability.

The ‘fruit’ of our work is truly valuable. People love those apples. When I bring JAZZ™ apples to my relatives their reaction is always the same: once they have tried them, they would never have another basic apple for their own consumption.”


Eppan – St. Michael, South Tyrol – Südtirol, ITALY

Paul Hölzl’s JAZZ™ apple orchards are located in the southern part of South Tyrol – Südtirol, an area that enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year and a mild climate, ideal for growing apples with a unique and delicious flavour. Paul has been running the family farm for a few years now and is very proud of his JAZZ™ orchard.

“We have always been interested in new varieties of club apples, so 10 years ago my father decided to plant them”. For Paul, being part of such a strong and well-organised organisation as the one behind the JAZZ™ apple is a source of great pride and many advantages.

“I grow JAZZ™ apples because they are very aromatic and tasty. During the year I work hard to ensure that the end consumer can hold a perfect apple in his hand. In autumn it is a great feeling to be able to reap the fruits of a year’s work.”
