Cavendish banana is originated in equatorial areas of Ivory Coast where soils, quantity and distribution of rainfall, and temperatures produce combinations of suitable conditions for a sweet and tasty banana. The West African banana is slightly smaller and sweeter compared with its starchier Latin American counterpart. Kiwi or Chinese gooseberry is native to China, namely Shaanxi province. Its extensive development and promotion started in New Zealand in 1904 thanks to the teacher Isabel Fraser who brought kiwi seeds to New Zealand from China. Although kiwi is commonly associated with New Zealand, in fact, Italy produces much more kiwi fruits than any other country in the world. The Hayward variety is moderately hairy and more rounded than other varieties. It has the best eating quality of the existing green varieties, mainly due to higher levels of sweetness.Their pulp is firm, juicy and sweet.
