A wee bit of Kiwi

The kiwifruit is perfect for weight watchers who want to keep count of their calorie intake. Aside from essential nutrients such as vitamin C and amino acids, kiwi has digestive enzymes that help in reducing the accumulation of fat.

The kiwifruit generally comes in three types — the grocery store kind also called Actinidia Deliciosa, the hardy one known as Actinidia Arguta, and super-hardy fruit or Actinidia kolomikta. However, there are nearly 50 varieties of kiwis grown across the world.

China is the leading producer of kiwifruits, with an output of 1,765,847 metric tons per year, followed by Italy, which produces around 447,560 metric tons.

Kiwifruit is harvested during the months of September and October. Each fruit is packed carefully and sold between November and April. Advanced preservation methods, however, have made sure that the kiwifruit is available year-round.


Here are some refreshing kiwi recipes that you can relish:
