California kiwi grower sets sights on mega record

In an effort to establish a record for the worlds single largest kiwi, three generations of one California kiwi farming family will host a Guinness Book of World Records event November 14th at Kool Kountry located at 42874 Rd 64 in Reedley, CA.,” announces second-generation member Jerry Kliewer.
According to Kliewer, the globally recognized record keeper will receive the results from two representatives who will be on hand to verify the records establishment. The Kliewer family which includes patriarch Lowell, son Jerry, and his son Jerin, have been growing kiwi fruit in California since 1973. In 2010, The Kliewers identified a unique variety in Europe that captured their attention. The “mega” kiwi not only grows to an incredibly large size, but boasts nearly twice the vitamin C and 60 percent more antioxidants than the standard “Hayward” variety. “We were so impressed with the mega kiwi that we obtained exclusive representation of this variety in the USA.” As part of their ramp up in production, the Kliewers will have organic Megakiwi available for consumers next year.  

Kliewer Family Farms grows table grapes, tree fruit, citrus, and kiwi in the Reedley, California.
