Types of kiwifruit

A Kaleidoscope of Flavour and Colour

In the enchanting world of kiwifruit, a delightful array of varieties awaits, each offering a unique blend of taste, texture and colour. From the classic green kiwifruit to the luscious golden and exquisite ruby, let us take you on a journey through the diverse spectrum of kiwifruit varieties that tantalize taste buds worldwide.

Green Kiwifruit (Actinidia deliciosa)

The iconic green kiwifruit, also known as the Hayward variety, is perhaps the most well-known and widely enjoyed of all kiwifruit types. With its lush emerald green flesh and characteristic brown fuzzy skin, the green kiwifruit offers a perfect balance of sweetness and tanginess. Its juicy and refreshing taste makes it a favourite in fruit salads, smoothies and desserts.

Renowned for its high vitamin C content, the green kiwifruit packs a nutritional punch, providing an excellent source of antioxidants, fibre and essential nutrients. As one of New Zealand’s key exports, the green kiwifruit has earned its place on breakfast tables and fruit platters across the globe.

Golden Kiwifruit (Actinidia chinensis)

Embracing a radiant golden hue, the golden kiwifruit, often referred to as Zespri SunGold, is a culinary gem cherished for its lusciously sweet and tropical taste. With smooth, hairless skin, this variety is a delight.

Golden kiwifruit boasts a unique flavour profile, characterised by its delectable sweetness and tropical undertones. Bursting with nutrients, including vitamin C, vitamin E and vitamin K, it serves as a nourishing treat that appeals to health-conscious food enthusiasts. Its vibrant colour and alluring taste make it a visual and delicious charm, adding a touch of elegance to fruit platters and gourmet creations.

Ruby Kiwifruit (Actinidia chinensis)

A relatively newer addition to the kiwifruit family, is the Ruby Red kiwifruit. Its smooth, thin skin showcases a striking red colour, evoking a sense of luxury and sophistication.

Delicate in taste, the ruby kiwifruit surprises with a slightly sweeter flavour than its larger counterparts. A treasure trove of vitamins, antioxidants and fibre, the ruby kiwifruit is a testament to the constantly evolving and innovative nature of New Zealand’s kiwifruit industry.
