INDIA: Zespri launches SunGold kiwifruit in Indian market

New Zealand kiwifruit grower Zespri has announced the launch of SunGold kiwifruit in India.

New Zealand kiwifruit grower Zespri has announced the launch of SunGold kiwifruit in India.

The yellow fruit – a cross-breed of Zespri’s green kiwifruit and the Chinese gold kiwifruit – will feature in supermarkets across India between May and October.

“The fruit is cultivated/ grown from June (Winter) until February/ March (Spring). The process is roughly 8-10 months,” a spokesperson for Zespri told just-food.

The fruits are then shipped to the various markets from April onwards.

The “nutritional powerhouse” claims to have three times the amount of vitamin C of an orange, 15% the daily value of vitamin E per 150g serving and 2g of fibre per serving.

Earlier this year, Zespri secured its first contract to export to Saudi Arabia in five years.
