The NZ fruit made famous on the Kiwi pav. Add to a green smoothie or juice & freeze in slices to make a healthy frozen dessert.
The kiwifruit, native to northern China, was first brought to and cultivated in New Zealand at the turn of the 20th century and was then known as the Chinese Gooseberry.
When the time came to export the fruit, to avoid the high duties charged on berries, the name was changed to the kiwifruit, or kiwi because of the fruit's shared characteristics with New Zealand's national symbol, the kiwi bird, which is also small, brown and fuzzy.
The possible health benefits of consuming kiwis can be researched online :)
