Our Baby Kiwi

The baby kiwi, also known as the “hardy
kiwi” grows on a plant belonging to the Actinidiaceae family. This small fruit, which is slightly larger than a walnut, is not a small version of the more well- known kiwi, but a century old fruit in its own right.

In order to meet our quality standards, Sant’Orsola baby kiwis must be whole, evenly-shaped, clean and without any damage or marks on their surface. Their smooth, light-green skin is edible and the characteristic, sweet and enjoyable flavor of the fruit is similar to that of the kiwi.

The fruits, which are picked in small clusters, grow on climbing lianas which can reach up to ten meters in length. The flowers bloom in May and the harvesting season begins towards the end of summer. Originally a wild and self-seeded plant, it is only in recent decades that botanists have started to study it and produce new, completely natural varieties that are suitable for cultivation.

Sant’Orsola’s baby kiwi plants are treated with a highly reduced use of phytosanitary treatment, 70% lower than the limits imposed by law. We only choose treatments with the lowest environmental impact and we use them on plants only when strictly necessary, to protect them. All Sant’Orsola’s crops are regulated by the “Sant’Orsola Procedural Guidelines for Integrated Pest Management”, in compliance with the national integrated production guidelines.
