Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit

In the late 1970s, New Zealand Kiwifruit growers began experimenting with the natural development of a golden kiwifruit. Seeds were imported from China, where a female plant was chosen for its yellow flesh and excellent flavor and crossed with a male plant proven to produce large, succulent fruit.

In 1992 one offspring plant from this family was selected and nurtured, resulting in the golden-fleshed kiwifruit now known as Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit.

Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit is New Zealand’s new national treasure. Luscious, tropical-sweet flavor makes it the perfect summertime refreshment. Slice a SunGold kiwifruit in half and use a spoon to scoop out its mellow yellow flesh. Blend it into your favorite drink, slice it over dessert, toss it into a salad, or use Zespri® Green and SunGold Kiwifruit together for a feast of color and taste. The possibilities are endless.

Spot Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit in the produce aisle at your local supermarket May through October. Look for the kiwifruit with smooth, bronze skin.  Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit is ready to eat at the point of purchase, so you can immediately enjoy its sunny yellow sweetness.

While its flavor provides a moment of delicious pleasure, the even greater value of Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit lies in its healthy stores of vitamins C and E, potassium, and fiber.
