Where have they come from?

Plant & Food Research logoPrevar contracts with the New Zealand-based Plant & Food Research pipfruit breeding programme to breed new apples and pears. The primary objective is to produce innovative, high-quality cultivars with exceptional appearance and eating quality, with good storage and shelf-life, and that can be grown in a sustainable production system. It was Plant & Food’s foresight that initiated this novel breeding endeavour in the mid-1980s with Prevar adopting the breeding strategy in 2004 when it began its operations.
