A Kiwi is a rather small, long-legged ground living bird - I don't think they can fly - which lives the thickest of scrub country and, I'm watching the right documentaries on television, is nocturnal and virtually never seen in the daytime. It's the New Zealanders National Emblem. That's the bird.
But 'Kiwi' is also the general term used by Australian for New Zealanders. Aussies and Kiwis, although living in different countries, share much in common and, of course, it is the combination of Australians and New Zealanders that make up that famous group we've just celebrated the Centenary of at Anzac Cover in Turkey. Anzac stands for Australian New Zealand Army Corps.
a kiwi is a very delicious fruit it is oval,about the size of a large hen's egg (5–8 cm (2.0–3.1 in) in length and 4.5–5.5 cm (1.8–2.2 in) in diameter). It has a fibrous, dull greenish-brown skin and bright green or golden flesh with rows of tiny, black, edible seeds. The fruit has a soft texture and a sweet but unique flavor, and today is a commercial crop in several countries, such as Italy, New Zealand, Chile, Greece, and France. Kiwifruit are so delicious, they can be eaten as is. One of our favorite ways to do so is to peel with a paring knife and slice.
Add kiwifruit to tossed green salads.
Serve sliced kiwifruit and strawberries, fruits whose flavors are naturally complementary, topped with yogurt.
Mix sliced kiwifruit, orange and pineapple together to make chutney that can be served as an accompaniment to chicken or fish.
Blend kiwifruit and cantaloupe in a food processor to make a chilled soup. For a creamier consistency, blend yogurt in with the fruit mixture.
Kiwifruit have a wonderful flavor and appearance for use in fruit tarts.
