Kiwi is a brown fruit with sweet and sour,green center. He comes from China. It was from there that the first tree-like lianas Actinidia chinensis (actinidia china) were introduced to New Zealand. The fruits on them were very small and more acidic. In the selection process, the species of Actinidia was large-fruited, which we see on the shelves of our stores. You can hear another name - Chinese gooseberry. These berries are similar in taste, both small pits in the middle and a large content of vitamin C. Kiwi grow bunches on lianas. They are a bit like trees, but they need support to grow. During the summer, the leaves of actinidia change color four times: green - white - pink - crimson.
