Counts for Kiwifruit

Saturday, June 6, 2009
Kiwifruit (also called kiwi fruit, kiwi, and Chinese gooseberry) has a flavor which has been described as a cross between strawberries, melons, and bananas. In the summer in the Northern Hemisphere, California provides most of our kiwifruit, while New Zealand takes over the rest of the year.

Health Benefits of Kiwifruit

Kiwifruit are an excellent source of vitamin C, as one large kiwifruit contains about as much vitamin C as 6 oz of orange juice. They are also a very good source of vitamin K, and a good source of potassium and copper. They also contain relatively large amounts of phytonutrients, which may help protect our cells from damage.
