Time for Autumn, time for Kiwifruit


We have the start of leaves turning brown/red/gold/orange and with it rain, wind - the usual cooler temperatures. It's also the start of Feijoa and Kiwifruit season.


Kiwifruit is grown throughout the Waikato/Tauranga areas of NZ. It is a major export here and is the 3rd largest producing country other than Italy and China. I don't care for it much, we have 2 types, golden and green - I much prefer gold.

  1. I liked the gold too but we don't get them here. The kiwi fruit we get are often greek, hard as rocks and take ages to ripen. K uses them to tenderise meat

  2. I like the contrast in leaves in that first shot.

  3. I eat almost anything (bar certain animal products) but I could never develop a taste for feijoas. That was a shame given that we had at least half a dozen feijoa trees in the orchard.

  7. I can never make up my mind about Kiwifruit. It's good in a fruit salad. Is it a hybrid of some kind?

  8. A Kiwi who doesn't like kiwi fruit? Surely a contradiction in terms. True, they are pretty much tasteless when unripe, and there's a fine line between ripe and overripe, but I love them anyway!

  9. I plan to see some of these ripe vines as I travel through the area in the coming week. I prefer the green and my kids prefer the gold. Many years ago,I went to a pick your own orchard. I came away with buckets of the fruit.
