Kiwifruit

Native to China, kiwifruit seeds were introduced to New Zealand by Isabel Fraser in 1904. Much of New Zealand’s kiwifruit is produced in The Bay of Plenty where there are warmer temperatures. Rich in vitamin C, kiwifruit are entirely edible, including the skin. It is also high in fibre and packed with the enzyme actinidin which are brilliant for digestion.
