Where do kiwis come from?

Even though there are over 50 different kinds of it, there are three common types: (Chinensis, Arguta, Kolomikta).

In the past, the kiwifruit, also known as the Chinese gooseberry (Actinidia deliciosa), was taken from China to New Zealand and was known as “Chinese gooseberry.” However, its similarities to that bird led to the name being borrowed.

It is commercially grown in New Zealand. Despite having an acid taste, the fruit is suitable for both raw and cooked consumption.

Iran’s Agricultural Research Station planted two kiwi seedlings for the very first time in 1968 in Ramsar, Iran. Even though the bad cold in 1971 caused severe damage to citrus trees, these young seedlings were not affected by frostbite.

Can you eat kiwi skin?
