Kiwi season in Georgia:

High-quality kiwis make up only around 40% of the harvest

The Hayward kiwi harvesting season in the regions of western Georgia is at its peak. In general, the weather did not have a serious negative impact on the 2021 harvest, but intense rains in late summer and early autumn did not significantly affect size of fruits, as was the case with mandarins this season.

Demur Pipia, head of the Georgian Kiwi Producers Association, said it is expected to harvest a total of 90-100 tons of kiwis, which is an average yield. The association sells its harvest to Nergeta, the largest kiwi producer and exporter in Georgia.

Nergeta has raised farm prices for kiwi from GEL 3.8/kg ($1.15) last season to GEL 4.5/kg ($1.43) today. Despite the higher prices, farmers do not see much improvement in this, as the real prices of various products in the country have risen significantly. Furthermore, high-quality kiwis make up only 30-40% of the total harvest. The price of smaller fruits in the local market is around GEL 2/kg ($0.63), which, according to farmers, is unchanged from several previous seasons.
