On March 24, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported prices of $20-23 for 19.8-pound containers of haywards 23-27s from Italy, up from $16-18 last year at the same time.

Oppy expects to begin bringing in New Zealand kiwifruit in early to mid-May, Woodyear-Smith said. Green volumes will be similar to last year for the company, but gold and organic shipments should be up, he said.

Even with New Zealand entering the deal, however, Woodyear-Smith said kiwifruit prices would be higher throughout the summer.

Mr. Koger, Your headline reads that Kiwifruit may be heading into unchartered territory. I think perhaps you meant uncharted territory. Unchartered is defined as " without a charter or constitution , lawless, irregular". Uncharted is defined as " territory not yet mapped or surveyed, unknown territory". Therefore based on your article of the price of hitting new highs previously unknown it would seem that the word uncharted would be a more accurate word to use. The two words are often confused and misused.

Why do Chilean people always wear khaki pants and light blue shirts? It never changes.
