There’s no need to peel – just cut in half and eat with a teaspoon. Use on pavlova or in fruit salads where it will add a splash of colour.
We source our kiwis from New Zealand whilst we wait for the European season to start in January. As with all our imported produce, we promise never to airfreight.
The kiwi fruit is not a native of New Zealand, but of southern China. After it was introduced to New Zealand it became known as the Chinese gooseberry because of its flavour. It was later renamed by New Zealand exporters in the 1950s.
Kiwis are high in fibre, vitamins C, A and E and are a good source of antioxidants. The skin is edible and contains high amounts of fibre.
Kiwis are rich in the enzyme actinidin, which can cause an allergic reaction – most commonly to people who are allergic to latex, papayas or pineapples.
Country of origin
Grown in Italy.
Our kiwis are sold as class 2. This means that they might not look cosmetically perfect, but they are grown for the very best flavour. (We have to tell you this to satisfy some EU rules).
