Kiwi Fruit

Actinidia deliciosa

Kiwi fruit, also known as Actinidia deliciosa, is a woody, climbing vine that is native to China. It has heart-shaped leaves and small, white flowers that produce the fruit. The fruit itself is a small, oval shape with a fuzzy, brown exterior and a bright green or yellow interior. It is packed with small, edible seeds.

In terms of growth, kiwi fruit vines can grow up to 30 feet in length and can take several years to mature and produce fruit. They prefer a temperate climate and well-draining soil. In order to cultivate them successfully, a grower may need to provide support for the vines to climb on, as well as regular watering and fertilizing. Kiwi fruit plants are not winter hardy and may need to be protected from frost.

In terms of edibility, the fruit of the kiwi plant is edible and can be eaten fresh or used in a variety of dishes. The fruit can be stored in the refrigerator for several weeks after harvest. Kiwi fruit is known for its high vitamin C content and has been used medicinally to boost the immune system.
