Look like fuzzy brown hairy eggs that help fight cancer. Very high levels of vitamin A, C, E, K. More vitamin C than citrus and as much potassium as bananas. Raw kiwi fruit is rich in the protein-dissolving enzyme actinidin. The oil in the seeds contains on average 62% alphalinolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid. Yes you can eat the hairy skin, but make sure its organic. Helps respiratory conditions like cough, asthma. High antioxidant levels help eye conditions like macular degeneration. High in fiber so it helps diabetes, colon, heart, lowers cholesterol, helps remove toxins and heavy metals. Blood thinner, good for blood clots. Edible Landscaping has types of kiwis that can handle temperatures from desert heat to 35 below zero (!) and produces thousands of fruit per year on a vigorously growing vine base.
