About Organic Kiwi Fruit
Originally known as the Chinese Gooseberry, back in the 1950s, it was renamed "Kiwi Fruit". This delicious fruit is wonderful when scooped out of its skin with a spoon but it also makes for great juice and the perfect accompaniment for ice cream. Packed with more vitamin C than an equivalent amount of orange, the bright green flesh of the kiwifruit speckled with tiny black seeds can add a dramatic tropical flair to any fruit salad.
Kiwifruit is an excellent source of vitamin C and a very good source of dietary fibre. It is also a good source of the minerals potassium, magnesium, and copper. In addition, kiwifruit is a good source of the antioxidant vitamin E.
