Production Cycle

Kiwifruit grow on the branches of kiwifruit bushes, which can be compared to grapevine tendrils.

The growing season for kiwifruit is long: up to 240 days a year.

New Zealand provides the ideal conditions for growing kiwifruit. Plentiful sunshine, rain and just the right amount of chill in the winter as well as fertile, slightly acidic soil.

Supply Chain

The Zespri System’s best practices are demonstrated right through the supply chain, which includes Growers, Packhouses, Coolstores, Suppliers, Transport and Shipping ensuring that customers and consumers consistently receive kiwifruit of the highest quality.
