DID YOU KNOW?
Kiwifruit has a history as rich as its taste is delicious — all thanks to talented visionaries, like New Zealand’s Isabel Fraser, Alexander Allison, and Hayward Wright, among others. It is especially in 1928 that Hayward developed and commercialized the variety of kiwi with the familiar green-flesh, referred to as the “Hayward” variety even till today. After getting many different names throughout the years, “Kiwifruit” came in recognition of New Zealand’s national symbol – the special brown-feathered Kiwi bird. Green kiwifruit is now the backbone of Zespri®, and the best-known variety all over the world.
Golden Bay Fruit – as one of its dedicated growers – is proud to be contributing to the success of Zespri® kiwifruit in New Zealand.
