Actinidia chinensis was the name given by the French botanist Jules Emiles Planchon in 1847, derived from the Greek aktis meaning little spoke, referring to the female flowers that unfurl like the spokes of a bicycle wheel.
Originating in China, where it has been enjoyed for over 2,000 years, this liana fruit grows along the banks of the Yangtze River and was known as Yang Tao, the Yang peach.
First grown in New Zealand at the beginning of the 20th century, the land where if first gained popularity give it the name Kiwi, just like the country’s national bird, which is also small, brown and hairy.
