The second to harvest from the Gala cross Splendour natural breeding programme in Havelock North. New Zealand Queen has a deep red skin colour, firm juicy flesh and a sweet flavour. It is harvested in mid season and has excellent keeping quality. New Zealand Queen is favoured by New Zealand growers for ‘putting a couple of boxes behind the shed’ over winter for personal consumption. Can be difficult to grow but the effort is worthwhile as New Zealand Queen is wonderful eating.
