Welcome to ZambeziFruit
Exotic vegetables from Zimbabwe
Together with more than seven farmers and a great team of experts in growing, cooling and managing global logistics we produce, pack and ship environmental and social sustainable Snow Peas and Sugar Snaps.
We are commited to the production of 100% sustainable crops and all have undergo the GlobalGAP certification process and most of them already the SMETA Audit, others are undergoing preparations to achieve this.
Snow Peas and Mangetout farming and exports create jobs and livelihoods in Zimbabwe from land preparation happening in the month of February until the end of the season in October after all accounts have been recovered.
Our fresh products
Snow Peas or Mangetout get their name because they sprout very early in the spring and occasionally get caught in a late spring snowstorm. Snow peas are bright green and are often used in Asian stir-fries. They are part of the legume family of sugar peas and have edible pods. Snow Peas are flat with tiny seeds that can barely be seen through the pods. They are low in calories and high in Vitamins A and C; making them a must in a healthy diet.
Sugar Snaps or sugar snap peas are a cross between garden peas and snow peas / mangetout. Sugar Snaps grow on a vine, which is supported by a trellis or other support system in order to keep the pods from touching the soil. They are a good source of vitamins A, C Thiamin, and Niacin, and provide adequate amounts of phosphorous, iron and potassium. Sugar snap peas are a great addition to a healthy diet because they contain no cholesterol, almost no fat and are low in sodium.
Green beans are elongated, thick
and fleshy with cylindrical shape. They have
a mild flavour that can sometimes seem somewhat sweet. They are a rich source of proteins, carbohydrates and dietary fibres. It also contains vitamins of the B group, vitamins C and K and minerals such as magnesium, iron and manganese.
