Golden/Yellow Kiwifruit

POST #    2208

I've always enjoyed the kiwi fruit, but sometimes it's a little acidic for my taste - even in the ripe versions. This weekend, I had the golden kiwi (also sometimes called yellow kiwi) for the first time and it was excellent. The golden kiwi has a sweeter taste and no noticeable acidity. You still get little seeds in your teeth, but that's not that big a problem. Wikipedia says it took 11 years to develop the golden version through cross-polinization. Apparently the skin is edible, but not something that I ate. Next time I'll be sure to give it a try. Now I just need to find out where to get some of these from my mom.

Mmm, kiwis are great - and they have a lot of vitamin C.

And I was reading some article about breeding blue tulips (I think - just some odd color) and that it takes sooo long to cross pollinate successfully.
