Golden kiwifruit was developed in New Zealand. It has the same sunburst pattern as green kiwifruit, with a pale core around which dance a circle of tiny ruby-coloured seeds, and lemony yellow-coloured flesh. It doesn’t have the nostril-clearing perfume or biting freshness of its green cousin. What it has is oodles of sweet tropical-fruit, melon and honey flavours, with a little ginger-beery zing. It’s juicy and sweet but not cloying. And it’s hairless so doesn’t leave fuzz behind in the fruit bowl.
Included in its riches is a megadose of Vitamin C – one golden kiwifruit contains more than double the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C (Vitamin C is the first line of defence against cell-damaging free radicals). It is also rich in Vitamin E, which helps boost your immune system when you’re stressed out or tired, and has not fats. There’s probably no better piece of fruit to consume the morning after a night on the tiles!
