Who are our Australian Rockit™ Apple Growers?

W.C. Green & Son

Lindsay Green – Owner/Manager

Orchard Location: Lenswood – Adelaide Hills, SA

“I’m a fifth generation orchardist and the only one of 4 siblings to stay and work on the orchard in Lenswood.

Our Rockit™ Apple trees were first planted in 2014 and we have 2,000 Rockit™ Apple trees.

Quality Assurance means everything to me to get top quality produce out to the customer and give them the best eating experience.

I believe the best feature of Rockit™ Apples is their crisp white flesh and sweet creamy taste.

When you buy Rockit™ Apples you are supporting local growers and businesses and the health benefits are amazing!”
