Krazy for Kiwi
I was contacted by Eva a rep from the Zespri Organic Kiwifruit people to extoll the virtutes of that fuzzy brown fruit with the juicy emerald centre. As we are coming into the fall and winter months we still need our fruit - that's where this little power packed gem comes in - I especially like the non fuzzy ones with a more golden centre - you can eat the whole thing!
Below are some nutrition facts courtesy of Zespri:
One serving of Zespri Organic Kiwifruit has more vitamin C than an orange, more potassium than a banana, is packed with iron, and has a naturally occurring enzyme called Actinidin, which aids in good digestion. Zespri Organic Kiwifruit comes from a grower-owned network in New Zealand, where it takes over three years to prepare the soil and orchards to become certified organic. Zespri also uses 100% recycled packaging.
