Kiwi fruit is distinctive, about the size of a large hen's egg with 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. It is an important commercial crop in several countries, particularly Italy, New Zealand, Chile, Greece and France. It has many uses, but most widely used in dessert decoration and as a garnish. The skin is inedible.
