The KIWIFRUIT Story
Kiwifruit (often shortened to kiwi outside Australia and New Zealand) or Chinese gooseberries is the edible berry of several species of woody vines. The most common cultivar group of kiwifruit is oval, about the size of a large hen’s egg. It has a thin, fuzzy, fibrous tart but edible light brown skin and light green or golden flesh with rows of tiny, black, edible seeds. The fruit has a soft texture with a sweet and unique flavour. In 2018, China produced half of the world total of kiwifruit.
Star South is a licensed holder of Zespri Kiwi Fruit in South Africa. We supply green and gold kiwifruit to all retailers within South Africa.
Kiwis are a nutrient-dense food making them rich in nutrients and low in calories. They have a reputation as a health food because of their high vitamin content, but the fruit is also rich in other nutrients. These may help reduce blood pressure boost wound healing, help maintain bowel health, and more.
