Kiwi fruit

An egg-shaped fruit with a fuzzy-brown skin and sweet green flesh, which is very rich in vitamin C (one kiwi supplying up to 70mg); they are also high in potassium, an average fruit having 250mg. They were originally imported as 'Chinese gooseberries' (where they originate), until commercial growing started on a large scale in New Zealand - and they were launched as "Kiwi fruit".
