KIWI FRUIT (CHINESE GOOSEBERRIES)



Share this information on Facebook


SCIENTIFIC NAME: ACTINIDIA CHINENSIS

FRANCAIS: FRUIT DE KIWI (GROSEILLES └ MAQUEREAU CHINOISES)




General Description:

Also known as the Chinese gooseberry , this odd-looking fruit received its moniker from the flightless bird of the same name from New Zealand. It looks like a large brown egg with a covering of fine downy hair. But this rather unusual exterior hides a beautiful brilliant green flesh, spattered with tiny edible black seeds. The kiwi's flavor is elusive. Some say it's reminiscent of pineapple . . . others say strawberry . . . but all agree that it has a sweet-tart flavor unlike any other fruit. The kiwi is cultivated in both New Zealand and California. Since New Zealand's seasons are the opposite of ours, this delectable fruit is pretty much available year-round. Ripe kiwis can be stored in the refrigerator up to 3 weeks. They can be halved and scooped out like a melon or peeled, sliced and used in salads, desserts or as a garnish. New Zealand's popular PAVLOVA dessert is a favorite local way to feature this fruit's beauty and flavor. Kiwis are a good source of vitamin C.
