Kiwi Fruit

We grow Kiwi fruit on our farm.kiwi fruit grown at echo vally farm, springbrook,farmstay holiday cottageThe kiwifruit, often shortened to kiwi has a fibrous, dull brown-green skin and bright green or golden flesh with rows of tiny, black, edible seeds.

The fruit has a soft texture and a unique flavour, and is great in icecream or as a dessert.

Kiwifruit is a rich source of vitamin C, and its potassium content by weight is slightly less than that of a banana. It also contains vitamin E, and a small amount of vitamin A.

Firm kiwifruit ripen after a few days to a week when stored at room temperature, but should not be kept in direct sunlight. Faster ripening occurs when placed in a paper bag with an apple, pear, or banana.
