Sweet, tender green beans
The perfect summer side dish, our bright green beans are locally grown in the Hawkes Bay where they flourish in the summer sun. Each bean is hand-picked pod by pod and delivered fresh daily to your local New World. For the best of New Zealand produce, buy in-season – and you’ll enjoy perfectly crunch green beans for a deliciously good price.
Meet our growers
Meet dad and daughter duo, Kevin and Alice from Bayley Produce in the Hawkes Bay – they grow beans and sweetcorn for New World. Our growers know it’s time to harvest their tender green beans when they reach just the right length and colour and they pick their sweetcorn when the tassels on top of each corn cob dries up and turns brown.
Sweet as corn cobs
The warmer months are here and so is our deliciously fresh sweetcorn. Our cobs of tender kernels are mainly grown in the warmth of Houhora, Hawkes Bay, Gisborne and Kaitaia. When buying sweetcorn look for blemish-free, firm husks with fully developed ears – a sign of freshness!

Sumptuous summer fruit
Meet our growers
Meet father and son Harry and Harry Junior from Alexandra, they grow summer fruit for New World like nectarines, apricots and cherries. Harry Snr is a born and bred summer fruit grower and his parents before him. He has been growing stone fruit in Alexandra his entire life – that makes Harry Junior a third-generation grower!
Hand-picked one by one
Our growers don’t just strip the trees of their fruit, they plan when to pick and then they taste test before the pickers go in to choose each individual fruit for the best colour, texture and flavour for you to enjoy: Nectarines are hand-picked for colour and texture, and apricots that have ripened to just the right size.
