Kiwi

Kiwi have a fuzzy brown skin (much like their namesake, the flightless bird from New Zealand that has fuzzy feathers.) They are either yellow (Golden Kiwi) or most probably green inside with lots of tiny edible black seeds. The yellow kiwis are a bit elongated at the ends while the green is a smooth oval shape. They have a smooth texture against the interplay of crunchy little seeds. They are a bit tart and a bit sweet; they are sweeter as they ripen. They are delicious and highly nutritious with a good dose of folate, potassium, and vitamins C and E. Loaded with antioxidant polyphenol, a kiwi a day may help lower triglyceride levels (which wards off arterial plaque build-up and therefore heart disease), as well as protect against cancer, diabetes and can even help us look younger!
