Overview

Kiwifruit is native to north-central and eastern China.  The first recorded description of the kiwifruit dates back to the 12th century China during the Song Dynasty.

Kiwifruit were first grown in Chile in the 1980s. The fruit has adapted to local climate conditions. Also, all kiwifruit sold across the globe are of the Hayward cultivar. Chile also has limited volumes of gold kiwifruit. Today Chile is one of the world’s leading producers of kiwifruit, available from March to November.

Nutrition

Kiwifruit are one of the most nutrient dense fruit available, due to a combination of vitamin C, dietary fiber, actinidin, potassium and folate.  Just one serving of kiwifruit provides a whopping 117% of the daily value of vitamin C and 21% of dietary fiber. Kiwifruit are also a good source of potassium and vitamin E.
