Abstract: REFRESHING, delicate flavour with pleasing aroma, and high nutritive value are the hallmarks of the ripe kiwi fruit. The kiwifruit (Actinidia deliciosa) or Chinese gooseberry is also popularly known as ‘China Miracle Fruit’ and ‘The Horticultural Wonder of New Zealand’. It is a large, woody, deciduous vine native to the Yangtze Valley of China and was introduced into India in the 1960s. Approximately 84% of the world production is contributed by China, Italy, New Zealand, and Chile. In India, the area under this fruit is negligible. The average experimental farm productivity of kiwifruit in our country is about 25 tonnes/ha as compared to New Zealand’s 28.63 tonn/ha.
