Kiwi fruit

Did you know?

New Zealanders named the fruit of the plant 'kiwi' after the Second World War, in homage to the islands' iconic bird, called 'kivi-kivi' by the Maori because of its cry.

Savoured for 2,000 years in China, the kiwi is the fruit of a liana that looks a bit like a grapevine. Today, the kiwi is popular worldwide, both for its tangy taste and because of its nutritional properties: it is rich in vitamin K1 and C, in particular.

At Vitabio, we didn't need to go to China to look for it: ours are grown more locally – in Aquitaine!
