With a second rocket planned for launching from the Mahia Peninsula  also in Hawkes Bay another Rockit is on it's way to dominate a world market if the CEO of Rockit Global, John Loughlin has his way.

Unlike Peter Beck's rocket this Rockit is much smaller and delivers a huge sweet taste but like the Mahia Rocket it is  winning it's fair share of awards.  This last week Rockit Global, who grow the Rockit apple, were named ExportNZ Hawke's Bay's ASB Exporter of the Year.

Theres more to the Bay than just the weather!
