Kiwi “flat” and “butterfly”
In recent years, our customers have become popular kiwi irregular shape. Obviously, the more attractive price enables our customers to make more profit, and we are glad to help. We supply kiwi, which are called in the market as “flat” and “Butterfly.” Some mistakenly classify them as separate species. In fact, it is only the results of the process of fertilization and subsequent ripening of kiwifruit.
Flat fruit are obtained by overcrowded clusters on a branch. This occurs when the pruning was done properly, resulting in a dense arrangement of kiwi fruit on the branch, as well as for other objective reasons.
Butterfly – is like a “Siamese twins,” it is double or triple kiwifruit. If desired, these indeed be compared in shape with a butterfly. The picture shows butterfly-like shape. At the photo of cutted kiwi is clearly visible that there are glued several cores.
In the table below you can see the caliber and weight ratio of kiwifruit. Thus, the ratio is: 30-10, 33-11, 36-12, 39-13, 42-14.
