About Us

bysenberries-mapWelcome to Boysenberries New Zealand, a grower-owned co-operative that promotes and manages the growing of boysenberries – a succulent, delicious and healthy fruit that can be used in a wide variety of products.

Boysenberries New Zealand was formed in 1989 and is today the largest marketer of boysenberries worldwide. The company is at the forefront of the continued development of New Zealand boysenberries and strives to ensure high standards that meet the exacting requirements of our international clients.

We’re based in Nelson on the northern tip of the South Island, where the balmy summers ensure a sun-sweetened yield of New Zealand boysenberries. After they are harvested in the summer, careful selection and grading ensures that only premium quality boysenberries reach discerning manufacturers, importers, hotels, restaurants and food service outlets around the world. A delicious beginning!



New Zealand has a deserved worldwide reputation for its unspoilt natural environment, pure water supply and fertile, lush soils. By serving New Zealand boysenberries, your customers will get the pure goodness and nutrition they appreciate and deserve. There are a number of natural characteristics that make our fruit ‘the pick of the bunch’ for healthy eating:

  • They have dietary fibre, which assists in reducing cholesterol and the risk of heart disease.
  • They’re a natural source of vitamins and minerals.
  • Have negligible fat content.

They taste delicious as well!


New Zealand is today the world’s largest producer and exporter of boysenberries, a fruit which is enjoyed all around the globe in many ways. Their sweet and piquant taste, together with their incredible rich colouration, makes them enormously versatile.

Chefs find the exotic reddish purple colour offers many creative possibilities to excite the palate and stimulate the eye. Manufacturers use the intense flavour of New Zealand boysenberries for premium jams, preserves and conserves, in dairy desserts, ice creams and yoghurts, as fruit fillings for bakery products and of course delicious beverages.

Boysenberries are also sensational on their own, and blend exceptionally well with other fruits making them ‘great mixers’ in juice, fruit or puree form.


Boysenberries are a relative newcomer to the industry and were introduced to New Zealand in 1937. By 1948 they were well established in the Nelson region, which remains the main producing area due to the preferred climate in which boysenberries thrive. Generally believed to be derived from a cross between a loganberry and blackberry, it was named after its inventor, a Swedish immigrant to California, Rudolf Boysen.
