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.
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.
