What is a kiwi?

Kiwis are large berries that usually grow on a species of woody vine in the genus Actinidia. Kiwis initially originated in eastern China, are oval in shape, and are roughly around the size of a typical chicken egg. 

The outer layer of their skin is camel-coloured, fibrous and fuzz coated. Despite its fuzzy covering, the skin is completely safe and edible. Its flesh is bright green in colour with a unique but pleasing texture and rows of distinctive tiny black seeds, which are also edible.

Kiwis are rich in vitamin C and dietary fibre which makes them popular in Indian households.
