A Gisborne based exporter, First Fresh, is sending a trial shipment of local persimmons to China within the next week to ten days. It's the first new fruit to gain market access since the NZ-China Free Trade Agreement was signed in 2008. Roughly half New Zealand's persimmon crop is grown in Gisborne and more trees have gone in the past few years.
