NZ apples: Aussies' forbidden fruit

A 90-year-long embargo maybe lifted to allow New Zeland apples into Australia, boosting trade.

    The World Trade Organisation [WTO] is set to announce its verdict, on Monday, on an appeal by Australia to uphold its long-running ban on apples from New Zealand.

    Australia has refused to let any foreign apples into the country since 1919, over fears of disease.

    New Zealand says Australia's policy is anti-competitive. Australia's decision left a sour taste among New Zealand apple farmers.

    Al Jazeera's Gerald Tan gets to the core of the issue in Hastings, the heart of New Zealand's apple industry.
