Kiwi Hill

As the traditional agriculture struggles to survive, various commercial farmings have been started at Ziro these days. One of them is kiwifruit, introduced a few years back. Not that the fruit is entirely new; its wild variety has been savored by the local people as long as they can remember.

The picture above is one of the many fairly large scale cultivations started at Ziro. This is located at Tajang Myolyañ, just two kilometers ahead of Pine Grove.


  1. How is the marketing facilities? What is the approx quantity of kiwi production in ziro?

  2. Kiwis produced locally are sold mostly in the markets of Ziro and Itanagar at present. Some parties outside the state have said to have expressed interest in procuring these fruits in bulk, but I still don't know if anything is going on.
    Since many people have started kiwi farming - of differing sizes, it is difficult to estimate the total production.
