“A Kiwi a Day Keeps the Doctor Away”

Zespri Organic Green Kiwifruit are harvested in New Zealand in the Bay of Plenty, where the rich volcanic soil, high sunshine hours and regular natural rainfall provide a highly fertile environment. It takes over three years to prepare the soil and orchards to grow Zespri Organic Kiwifruit, and strict principles of organic production support healthy vines and healthy fruit.


Kiwifruit is a great-tasting superfood with a low glycemic index. The powerful combination of Vitamin C, actinidin, potassium and folate gives Zespri Kiwifruit one of the highest nutrient density and adequacy scores compared to other common fruit.

  • It is a rich source of Vitamin C, with one Zespri Kiwifruit providing more Vitamin C than an orange. One a day will keep your Vitamin C levels strong and strengthen your natural defenses.
  • It is a good source of dietary fiber, which is important to keep the digestive system healthy.
  • Actinidin, a protease enzyme unique to Kiwifruit, helps us digest several food proteins found in meat, milk, legumes and cereal.


From breakfast to dessert, there are countless ways to enjoy Kiwifruit. Kiwifruit is great as a snack on its own, but it is also a fantastic ingredient for drinks, salads, sweet desserts and even soups or savory entrees. Zespri has some amazing recipes available to inspire you:
