Harvest of the Month: Kiwifruit

Kiwis are a good source of Vitamins C and K, and a good source of fiber. Kiwis are also a great source of potassium, folate, beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin. Kiwis are one of the most nutrient-dense of all fruits.

California is the only state that commercially produces kiwis for the United States marketplace. California kiwis represent 95 percent of all kiwis grown in the United States. Approximately 8,000 acres are devoted to the production of kiwis in the United States. Kiwis were not widely available in California grocery stores until 1970.
