A kiwifruit legacy

04 Dec 2020



Today we speak to Dr Ross Ferguson, an internationally recognized expert on the biology of kiwifruit. Ross's work helped to develop New Zealand's successful kiwifruit industry. In this podcast he talks to scientist Dr Jay Jayaraman (currently working on the kiwifruit disease PSA) about his career and his science, starting as a summer student and being one of the first people to work on kiwifruit. He also touches on topics like how the first cultivars came to New Zealand and how hermaphrodite kiwifruit would be commercially beneficial.
