Meet Our Growers

Passionately working hard all-year round to grow the perfect JAZZ™ apple so you always have a refreshing eating experience.

DUTOIT AGRI

Ceres, SOUTH AFRICA

Dutoit Agri has been growing apples since 1922 with 4500 hectares of orchards located in Ceres, the Koue Bokkeveld and Witzenberg Valley in the Western Cape. Growing conditions in these cool, high valleys are perfect for apples. The cool mountain air slows down the ripening process which allows for intense colours, flavours and aromas to develop. This combined with the clean, pure mountain water used in the orchards ensures the highest quality JAZZ™ apples.

“A lot of tender love and care goes into managing our orchards to achieve the best size, colour and flavour intensity in our JAZZ™ apples. The unique flavour and attractiveness of JAZZ™ as well as the added value of a worldwide marketing campaign, made the decision to grow these delicious apples easy.” Commented Tanith Freeman, Product Development Manager Dutoit Agri.

“JAZZ is an exciting variety, with delightful flavors”

With over 100 year’s apple growing experience at Ceres Fruit Growers their JAZZ™ apple orchards are in good hands. Their orchards are nestled in valleys seated 900m above sea level, with adequate winter chill and surrounded by mountains to keep the Cape’s famous winter storms at bay. With more than 300 sunny days to grow juicy, crunchy JAZZ™ apples, some of the most beautiful apples are grown for markets across the globe.

“JAZZ™ is a new exciting variety, with delightful flavors that eats and store well with a global demand. Most apple varieties originating from New Zealand normally do very well in our orchards and climate.” Commented De Kock Hamman (CFG Technical Advisor)
