Did You Know?Kiwi
The fruit was named by New Zealanders after the brown, fuzzy and flightless creature it resembles, the Kiwi bird.
First brought to the United States in 1962, it took nearly 20 years for kiwi to become a popular fruit.
Grown in both California and New Zealand, kiwi is harvested by people wearing white gloves to protect the fruit and prevent fingernail cuts in its delicate skin.
The entire kiwi can be eaten–skin and all. Simply wash thoroughly, trim the ends and enjoy.
