Everything You Wanted To Know About The Kiwi!


Kiwifruit or Kiwi is thought to have been discovered in China and was considered a delicacy among royals. They were known then as Chinese Gooseberry.

Seeds from China were introduced to New Zealand in the 1900s and were exported to the United States in the 1950s.

Today, the most common variety is the Hayward, grown almost exclusively in California. The fruit grows on a woody vine that can reach up to 30 feet tall. I took these photos using a macro lens to get in close

By helping to maintain a healthy blood pressure and providing a boost of Vitamin C, the Kiwifruit can reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease. Beyond this, Kiwi also contains a high level of dietary fiber. Fiber can reduce risk factors for heart disease by lowering LDL or bad cholesterol.
