Kiwi found its origin in China , more than 700 years ago, where it was already appreciated by the royal court. The fruit arrived in New Zealand in 1906, thanks to some local missionaries coming back from China , who brought with them some wild plants that would have been used as ornamental plants.
At the beginning of the fifties, the botanist Hayward Wright, after long and repeated studies succeeded in obtaining the first commercial variety, giving it his own name.
