Its exotic names allude to roots on the other side of the world.But the kiwi fruit, or Chinese gooseberry, will soon be grown in the 'Garden of England', it seems.

What a nice photo. We had kiwifruit vines in our backyard when I was growing up.

Agricultural science produces such marbels these days.

Interesting development as EU regulations resulting in the destruction of centuries old orchards and the loss of many old species of English apple varieties! Lets hope they don't ban the Kent Kiwi! I would have thought that a fruit that is not round and a bit hairy would have worried the brown stuff out of the EU bureaucrats and flushed them out of their air conditioned palaces in Brussels and Strasburg depending on which office complex they are inhabiting at the time!
