Hayward – Kiwi


The Hayward kiwi is the main green variety produced for the world’s markets and dominates production in most growing areas. It is moderately hairy and more rounded than other kiwi varieties. Hayward has the best eating quality of the existing green varieties, mainly due to higher levels of sweetness. The skin is thin (and can be eaten without much discomfort!) and the flesh is an attractive green with a white centre.

Kiwi plants are either male or female, and Hayward fruits are borne by a female vine.
