Zespri says it's had a successful export season this year and payments to kiwifruit growers look solid despite a tough growing and selling season.

The kiwifruit marketer says it's exported almost 100 million trays this season.

December forecast returns to growers are set to increase by $47 million to almost $826 million when compared with last season.

The company says shipments are leaving every week from Tauranga.
