When it comes to the very best Grower Fresh apples, Countdown's Dennis McMillan reckons you can't go past Turners & Growers in Hawke's Bay.

Countdown's been working closely with Myles Hemara and the team for the past 24 years, and the fruits of those labours are the crispiest, juiciest, most heavenly apples you're likely to eat.

"Our aim is to grow a premium product and in order to do that, we need a passionate team to get behind us. The amount of work that goes into producing one apple; the amount of people that put insight into that apple, that grow that apple...it really is the people in the end that make this industry."

"It's awesome that Countdown come out and actually liaise with us. They put in a lot of effort and it motivates us to produce something premium for them. We're basically looking for good colour, we're looking for quality, and we're looking for size - a good sized apple."

"Grower fresh to me means getting our fruit out to market as soon as possible, from tree to bin to cool storage and on the shelf for presentation."

"Our secret to success is that we listen to our customers. There's things they want and things they don't want so we try to get as close to the mark as we can."

Myles says they're best eaten straight off the tree, while Dennis loves adding them to a good coleslaw. Try them fresh and crunchy in this Beetroot and Apple Salad, or warmed up in this Apple Banana Bread.
