It's Kiwi Season!

Did you know that two kiwifruit have more vitamin C than an orange and as much potassium as a banana? And, SunGold, a new variety of kiwifruit with tangy, tropical flavors, has four times the USRDA of vitamin C in one fruit.

Kiwifruit are nutritional powerhouses and are also a great source of micronutrients like Vitamin E and antioxidants. They’re high in fiber, have a low glycemic index, and two fruit have fewer than 100 calories.

According to Rebecca Scritchfield, registered dietitian, nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t eat the daily recommended amount of fruit. Says Scritchfield, “Kiwifruit packs a nutritional punch and is a delicious and healthy way to boost fresh fruit consumption.”

An infograph highlighting the many nutritional benefits of kiwifruit can be viewed and downloaded at Along with the infograph, you’ll find tasty recipes, a news release, product fact sheets and downloadable images.

Zespri® Kiwifruit are available in the United States and Canada for a limited time, from June through October.
