MAKING time for Taste-Testing Kiwi Fruit aka Chinese Gooseberry (it is native to Szechuan) I found the more hairy tough skinned and smaller Chilean variety to be inferior! The central core of the Chilean Kiwi is also very hard and fibrous and practically inedible. The NZ Kiwi has a tender central core and is more succulent and juicy! The Chilean variety takes some two weeks after purchase before it is ripe enough to be eaten! You cannot cut the Chilean in half and the use a teaspoon to scoop out the flesh…You CNA do this with the New Zealand Kiwi Fruit…The Chilean variety also takes some 3 weeks to ripen! The New Zealand Kiwi takes a few days to ripen. The moral of the tale is DO NOT Buy Chilean Kiwi Fruit!
Kiwi Fruits have enzymes like the papaya that can tenderise meat…
