Walking Bird Fruit.

Hello Everybody,
 
Today I got in contact with fruit.
And that sounded really weird….
Anyway, I’ll get to that later.
Todays fruit was.. kiwi.
How extraordinary that one is.
So I thought… Why not find out a bit more about this type of fruit?
Making this my goal of today… so here we go:
“The kiwi (a.k.a. Actinidia chinensis) is the eatable product of a fast growing swinging creeper.”
So, that is the definition of kiwi.
Not really new to me, but it could be to some.
To the ones that think that milk comes out the factory, or even worse..
out of the supermarket.
And for the ones who think now:
Those don’t exist!
Ehmm.. they actually do.
 
Back to my fruit of today: kiwi.
Kiwi was seen as an exotic fruit for a long time in the west.
Just in the 80’s the fruit became natural in those countries.
The kiwi is also very healthy and nutritious.
1 kiwi is known to contain more vitamin C than any other
sort of fruit up to 166% of the daily requirement.
They also are a good source of potassium,
contain cholesterol-lowering pectin, amino acids, beta carotene,
folate, magnesium, copper, zinc, phosphorus, manganese,
vitamin A and is a low-fat source of vitamin E.For the readers that now think: Ow gosh..
You probably never had chemistry and/or biology,
meaning I have to make it a bit easier for you, and I think I can, like this:
Kiwi = good.
Easy enough?
 
Ow, and another nice thing to know:
“The kiwi can not be eaten with milk products,
this is due to the enzyme actinide,
that breaks down proteins and gives everything a bitter taste.”
Doesn’t sound too interesting, depends on how you look at it I guess.
To me its more like:
So.. this means that every milk product saying to contain any trace of kiwi.. is lying.
Because the second you mix milk with kiwi it will break down the proteins.
Or the product will be very bitter, then they are right.
Or the product contains fake products to make something taste like kiwi.. also possible, right?
 
The kiwi originally is from China, where they’ve known this fruit for centuries.
Just in 1906 the seeds were brought to New-Zealand.
Years later the kiwi from New-Zealand became an international marketing product
called after the national walking bird:
The kiwi.Untill now New-Zealand has been the largest producer of the kiwi up to 75% of all kiwi’s in the summer.
Counties like America (California), Chili and Italy also produce kiwi’s.
This is a need because of New-Zealand mostly producing in the summer months.
The other countries fill up the gaps in the year each producing kiwi’s in different times in the year.
Due to all theses countries we can eat our beloved kiwi every day of the year.
 
Ow, leaves me with one thing.
The thought behind eating a kiwi
isn’t eating the skin along with it.
Sounds kinda logic, not?
Though I’ve seen someone eat it with skin and all..
Not such a nice few.
 
So please don’t..
And don’t try the thing on that image either, please..
 
And.. now get these stains out of my trousers..
