Who said small fruits can’t pack a punch? I enjoy consume the Zespri® Kiwifruit for its potassium, fibre and vitamin c to support my day-to-day wellness, from heart, to digestive health and antioxidant absorption.
When I first saw this from its unique novel tube packaging, I thought it was peach. Rockit Apple, the world’s first miniature apple with only 1.5 size of a golf ball, is pre-washed and make a perfect snack for children, busy adults and sportspeople. Available from 3 apples to 6 apples a pack, it is hygiene and convenient for people to just grab and go.
I love Enza™ Apple! Well-known for developing unique apple varieties that are rich in taste and crisp to the bite, you can try their more commonly known varieties such as the Royal Gala, Gala, Braeburn, Fuji and Granny Smith, rest assure that each variant is of high quality and uniquely flavorsome.
