Kiwifruit is a delicious and highly nutritious fruit that has been enjoying a surge in popularity over the past few years. Native to China, the kiwifruit is often referred to as a Chinese gooseberry, thanks to its resemblance to the cultivated berry of the same name. In the 1960s, however, New Zealanders began promoting the export of this unique fruit, giving it the nickname it holds today—the kiwifruit.

Kiwis actually belong to the genus Actinidia, and there are several varieties of this delightfully sweet and health-packed fruit. The most popular variety is called the Hayward, named after the Hayward family who grew and promoted this type of kiwifruit in New Zealand in the 1960s. More recently, other popular varieties such as the Zespri Green and Zespri Gold have become widely available.

The kiwifruit is an oval-shaped fruit with a fuzzy, brown exterior and a soft and smooth green interior. The soft and juicy flesh of the kiwi is filled with tiny edible black seeds and is both sweet and tart in flavor. They are fairly large fruits and can range from the size of a walnut to the size of a small apple. However, the most commonly available size is the Hayward, which is about the size of large chicken egg.

Kiwifruit offers plenty of nutritional benefits. It is a good source of dietary fiber, potassium, and Vitamin C, which helps support healthy bones and skin. Kiwis are also a good source of folate and Vitamin E, as well as contain good levels of Vitamin A and magnesium. As a result of all these valuable nutrients, regular consumption of kiwifruit is associated with reducing the risk of high blood pressure, stroke, and heart disease.

Aside from its numerous health benefits, kiwifruit is also considered to be a very versatile fruit, and can be enjoyed in a wide variety of ways. They can be eaten raw, sliced and added to salads, or juiced and added to smoothies. They are also great for baking and can be cooked into jams, pies and tarts. Kiwifruit pairs especially well with other fruits and berries, making it great for creating delicious, yet healthy smoothies and desserts.

Kiwifruit is available year round and is not too difficult to find, as it is sold in most supermarkets and health food stores. When buying kiwis, look for fruits that are slightly soft and free of blemishes. Although it may look odd on the outside, the texture and flavor of the inside is what’s important. Be sure to store your kiwis in an airtight container and keep them at room temperature until you’re ready to use them.

Overall, the kiwifruit is an incredibly tasty and nutritious fruit that deserves to be better appreciated. Not only does it taste great, but it’s good for you too. So go ahead and enjoy this delicious and highly nutritious treat, and don’t forget to invite your friends over to join in on the fun.
