Summer Kiwi

This green kiwi of Italian origin is the result of nearly 20 years of research and the breeding of more than 18,000 plants.

It is the earliest green kiwi in the Chilean season: it is harvested two weeks earlier than the Hayward.

In addition to its harvest date, it is recognizable by its elongated shape with a slightly wider base. Its flavor is sweeter and less astringent than Hayward’s.


This early kiwi of sweet and yellow flesh was developed and patented by the University of Udine, Italy.

Besides its color, this variety is characterised by its great size (100 g) and harvest date: 3 to 4 weeks earlier than Hayward.
