Fluffy and outlandish fruit kiwi
And do not even suspect many of us that one of the names of this fluffy and outlandish kiwi fruit is a monkey peach. Yes Yes! That's what they call kiwi. And also Chinese gooseberry and actinidia.
Gift from China
This Chinese was born by origin andNew Zealand's education for the fruit of kiwi is only a hundred years ago! Some amateur gardener Allison from New Zealand then, at the beginning of the last century, received a gift - monkey peach seeds brought from China. For three decades, the horticulturist has been experimenting with an exotic plant, until he raised a bush with fruits, which today we call kiwi. It should be noted that of all overseas fruit gifts, this one has most successfully passed the allergenicity test. The fact that the kiwi fruit is the record holder for the vitamin C content, you probably already heard: 100 g of its fruit weight contains 360 mg of "ascorbic". And there is no misprint: a four-fold daily dose for a person! And today, more and more often talk about fluffy and outlandish kiwi fruit as the second after pineapple fruit slimming. Like pineapple, it contains an enzyme, but not bromelin, but actinide. It breaks down proteins, helps digest food. However, we must remember that this enzyme is rapidly destroyed by heating, so that it is best to enjoy the fruit of the kiwi fresh.

Do not wrinkle "nose"!
Exactly! If the shaggy skin of kiwi fruit wrinkles, then do not put it in your basket. The ripe and tasty fruit should be a little soft, and its skin - slightly press through when pressed. Specialists of the "kiviade" argue that the "fur" fruits, having a slightly flattened shape, have special taste and juiciness. And do not worry - the larger the actinidia, the better. By the way, do not forget to smell the fruit: if kiwi exudes the aroma of a banana, strawberries and lemon - this is a sign of ripeness. If you have got hard to the touch fruit, determine them for ripening in the "company" to other fruits, for example bananas or apples. But to store kiwi is best in the refrigerator, where they can lie quietly for one or two months. At a temperature of 0 degrees, fruit can be stored for up to six months. And keep in mind that "lohmatics" quickly absorb foreign smells. It is best to store these fruits in a plastic bag with holes.
