About Us

Sweet, flavorful with a firm crunch, the Sonya apple is the first commercial apple variety to emerge from Nevis Fruit Company, one of the world's finest breeding organizations in New Zealand. Nevis program varieties are bred for flavor and eating quality first, but appearance and handling characteristics are also very important.
In the United States, Sonya apples are marketed and distributed by Sage Fruit Company and Rainier Fruit Company of the Yakima Valley. Both companies are proud to offer Sonya apples to premier U.S. retailers.
Now a patented variety, the Sonya name is trademarked in the United States and 50 other countries. Sonya apples have experienced widespread commercial success in North American, European and U.K. markets.
