Why Buy New Zealand Passionfruit?

Things our customers should know...

New Zealand is a clean, green, island nation in the South Pacific
and there are definite advantages which come from being so isolated.

We are free of major pollutants and also free of Fruit Fly which means we have access to
most world markets.

But there are other important advantages as well, including...

 
  • Very few, if any, insecticides are used on New Zealand passionfruit so buyers can be assured of no chemical residues.
  • Because the fruit drops to the ground when mature, buyers can be assured of consistent quality and sweetness.
  • Unlike a lot of other fruit, the taste of New Zealand passionfruit actually improves with age, hence the saying "sweeter when wrinkled."
  • New Zealand passionfruit have good storage life, up to 4 weeks if stored in a refrigerator at the correct temperature (see storage details on the tray).
  • The fruit is harvested and packed in single layer trays and reaches world markets within 24-48 hours.
  • Each fruit is individually labelled with a PLU sticker and each tray is wrapped in a plastic liner to stop dehydration.
  • There are between 28 and 42 fruit per tray depending on size.
  • The fruit has a final audit by Agriquality staff who check for quality and pests before air freighting overseas.
  • New Zealand passionfruit are available for 8 months of the year (see availability chart on this site).
  • New Zealand passionfruit are a very good source of Vitamin C, a useful source of Vitamin A and niacin, with some riboflavin.
  • They are also an excellent source of dietary fibre, low in sodium with no fat.
  • One medium sized fruit contains around 15 calories (see nutrition information on this site).
