Over 1 million tonnes of kiwifruit are produced each year. Size, colour of flesh, texture of skin and taste of kiwifruit depend on the many available varieties. Commercially available now are green, gold or yellow, red or red heart and green-gold hybrid. The flesh is soft with rows of small, black, edible seeds surrounding a white also edible core. Flavour is tangy sweet with a unique taste, sometimes described as a mix of strawberry, banana, and pineapple.
