The poor kiwi. No one really knows what to call it. The fuzzy, green fruit with black seeds is originally from China and was first called yang tao. When missionaries brought them to New Zealand, they were renamed Chinese gooseberries. In 1961 they were first introduced to the United States and their name was changed from Chinese gooseberries to kiwis after the native bird of New Zealand, the kiwi.
