Though Italy is now one of the main producer in Europe of kiwi fruits, the kiwi is originally native to China. Its name comes from the New Zealander "kivi-kivi". Rich in vitamin C, a single fruit covers the recommended intake for a day!
The king of sweet and savoury, the kiwi lends itself equally well to desserts, starters or main courses. The kiwi is a fruit very well endowed with vitamin E (1.2 mg/100 g), a vitamin with antioxidant properties.
