Himachal Pradesh, Dec 17, 2007 : Growers of Kiwi in Himachal Pradesh, also known as Chinese gooseberry, are complaining of lack of proper marketing network. Ever since the fruit was imported from New Zealand over two decades ago, many farmers diversified into cultivating Kiwi.
At one time, the fruit was sold at more than rupees 100 for a
kilogram. With fall in demand, today it is fetching just around
rupees 10 - 30 for a kilogram.
