MEET LETISHA WHITE,
A ZESPRITM ORGANIC KIWI GROWER
NOT YOUR AVERAGE 18-YEAR-OLD
Letisha comes from a long line of kiwifruit growers in Opotiki, New Zealand. She grew up learning how to work alongside nature to produce nature’s best, Zespri™ Organic Kiwifruit, and now even nurtures her own crop. Proactive in approach, Letisha and her family are constantly scanning the orchard to identify areas for improvement, and completing key orchard jobs such as pruning and thinning in response to the timing dictated by nature’s weather patterns.
SOIL, THE SECRET TO HER FAMILY’S SUCCESS
The White family has always understood that nutrient-rich soil is the key to delicious, healthy kiwifruits. To keep the soil at its best, they test soil nutrient levels every year, and guided by this information they further enrich the soil using only certified organic compost and fertilisers, often sourced from seaweed and fish.
Organic growers like the White family conduct visual checks of soil within the orchard. When the soil is healthy and rich in organic matter, it attracts beneficial organisms that further aerate and nourish the soil.
Healthy soil boosts water retention, soil fertility, and biological activity, creating a more resilient production system that works with nature.
CONTINUING THE SPIRIT OF KAITIAKITANGA
As part of the fifth generation to live on the land, Letisha has seen first-hand how kiwifruits grow better when the natural surroundings thrive, thanks to her deep understanding of kaitiakitanga (looking after the land for future generations).
The White family takes a biological approach for pest and disease control. They remove plants that attracted unwanted visitors and replace those with plants that attract beneficial soil organisms. When organic orchards thrive in natural harmony, you truly see the power of nature come alive.
By selecting Zespri™ Organic Green and Zespri™ Organic SunGold™ Kiwifruit, you have the confidence of knowing that the fruit is produced with the purity of only certified organic inputs - by growers with a passion for producing great-tasting high-quality fruit, powered by nature.
