Enzed Exotics, New Zealand’s leading grower of Kiwano horned melons, is forecasting a continued upward trend in US sales this season after seeing nearly 50 per cent growth since 2015.
The company grows its premium natural Kiwano using New Zealand’s ideal growing conditions paired with the company’s experience in seed selection and quality handling techniques, while following a sustainable farming practice.
According to Enzed, the fruit's flavour is often described as a cross between a banana, passionfruit and lime. The season kicks off in January.
“Enzed Exotics is known for having consistently high quality because our fruit is timed perfectly to be picked, shipped, and arrive at peak quality,” said Vanessa Hutchings, owner and managing director of Enzed Exotics. “Thanks to mixologists and chefs, the Kiwano can be found on menus across the country, and food influencers continue to encourage the re-creation of Kiwano-inspired recipes for at-home chefs and health enthusiasts alike.”
