The Conference pear variety was discovered in Britain by Thomas Francis Rivers and holds its name from the first prize they it got at the National British Pear Conference in London in 1885. Similar to the Bosc variety, the medium-sized pear with an elongated bottle shape has a white pulp that turns pale yellow when ripe. Conference pear's texture is very fine and soft, and its flavour is sweet. 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.
Pears are an excellent, healthy part of the diet. They contain fiber, which helps the digestive system work smoothly and may help lower cholesterol levels. They also contain calcium, iron, protein, antioxidants and vitamin C. There are ten times more vitamin C in Kiwi than in the equal weight of a lemon. Kiwis have more potassium than a comparable serving of bananas . High in fibres, it also offers calcium, iron, vitamin A and E. Credit goes to little black seeds, as they act much like grains, providing lots of nutrition.
