Yellow Kiwi /sungold/

Walking in Isetan’s B1, I stumbled across these fruits, simply delicious and most unusual. So what’s the story behind this kiwi.

In the late 1970s, New Zealand Kiwifruit growers began experimenting with the natural development of a golden kiwifruit. Seeds were imported from China, where a female plant was chosen for its yellow flesh and excellent flavor and crossed with a male plant. In 1992 one offspring plant from this family was selected and nurtured, resulting in the golden-fleshed kiwifruit now known as SunGold Kiwifruit.
