Actinidia deliciosa, more commonly known as kiwi, is a fruit of Chinese origin.
The plant is a large deciduous climbing liana which can grow to a height of 10 m. In nature the plant is supported by other trees or rocks, while the agricultural variety is largely sustained by its own trunk, the terminal part of which wraps itself like a tendril (like beans).
A particularly important kiwi variety is the Hayward.
The Hayward produces a medium-large fruit with a strong peel and a green pulp. With respect to the other, this variety has a highly advantageous characteristic: it can be kept refrigerated for months without undergoing any damage. Ripening is easily triggered by storing the fruit in a warm area with some apples. Another typical characteristic of kiwis is their acidity, a result of the presence of ascorbic acid (vitamin C); together with other organic acids it gives the fruit excellent antioxidant and self-preservation qualities.
Kiwis contain large amounts of vitamins, especially vitamin C. In fact, its presence in the edible part of the fruit, (85 mg per 100 g of edible pulp) is higher than that of oranges (50 mg); as it is known, vitamin C is an excellent antioxidant.
Earlier bud mutation of Hayward: it can be harvested 30-35 days before Hayward. Aside from the harvesting time, this cultivar retains the same characteristics of the variety from which it derives. The advantage of this cultivar is the early harvesting period that allows exploiting a trading period (September-November) hardly covered by the production of the Southern hemisphere (New Zealand and Chile).
Available from early September, its softness and early ripening allows the deliciously sweet pulp to be scooped out and enjoyed with the aid of a simple teaspoon.
