The kiwifruit is the edible fruit of a cultivar group of Actinidia deliciosa and hybrids between this and other species in the same genus. In North America, South America and Europe, it is commonly known as "kiwi," the same name as the bird. Originally known as the "Chinese Gooseberry" or "Melonette", the fruit was renamed for marketing reasons after New Zealand's national symbol due to a passing similarity to the small, furry-looking creature.Photo credit: André Karwath
