24 May – ‘Eat a Kiwi Day’: Why kiwi?

On May 24th, the nationwide Eat a Kiwi Day in Germany will take place for the seventh time. Here is why it is best to eat a kiwi every day.

Kiwis are pure indulgence

Especially Zespri™ kiwifruit, because they develop with an optimal ripening time. The SunGold™ kiwi is very popular because of its juicy-sweet taste – the green kiwi, on the other hand, is the first choice for everyone who likes it tangy and sour.

Kiwis are an ideal snack

Simply cut open and spoon out: The kiwi is easy to enjoy as a snack. It’s good to always have one to hand.

Kiwis give you energy for every day

Whether SunGold™ or Green Kiwi – kiwis are wonderfully refreshing! They are a great way to start the day, because they give you a lot of momentum without weighing you down.

Zespri™ kiwifruit

Kiwis are healthy

For example, a single Zespri™ SunGold™ kiwifruit has enough vitamin C to cover one fruit’s daily vitamin C needs! [1] Kiwis also contain many other vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Kiwis are versatile

Smoothie, breakfast bowl, salad, snack or dessert: The kiwi can not only be enjoyed pure, but is also ideal for delicious and healthy recipes.

On behalf of 2,800 growers in New Zealand and 1,500 growers elsewhere, Zespri™ manages product development, supply and distribution management and marketing of Zespri™ Green, Zespri™ SunGold™, Zespri™ Organic, Zespri™ Gold, Zespri™ Sweet Green and Zespri™ RubyRed™ Kiwifruit.

[1] Rich in Vitamin C: A 53g Zespri™ SunGold™ stick or a 91g Zespri™ Green stick provides 100% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C. Zespri™ SunGold™ average weight: 89.7g, Zespri™ Green average weight: 92.5g
