Our Growers

Pazazz is grown by a small group of family farmers in orchards across North America. In many cases they’re second, third or fourth generation apple growers who know the land and what goes into making a truly special apple. Wherever a Pazazz grower is located, one thing is for sure: they’re true stewards of the land growing some of the world’s best tasting and most responsibly grown fruit available.



How does Pazazz get it’s natural, juicy, unique flavor? It starts with Mother Nature and a lot of patience. Pazazz is all natural and doesn’t come from a lab. Ten years ago we took a Honeycrisp seed and kicked off a process of careful cross pollination to find a variety with the crunch of a Honeycrisp but a unique flavor profile all its own. We’ve been out in our orchards ever since, tasting, testing and tweaking what we believe is a true wow apple eating experience like no other. In fact, to keep that experience as wow as it can be, every Pazazz apple is grown to our strict TruEarth standards of environmental responsibility and sustainable practices. Watch the magic happen in the videos below!
