"Chinese gooseberry" is another (and older) name for kiwi fruit, a southeast-Asian vine that bears small, oval fruit with a thin brownish-green skin and a fuzzy surface. The flesh, which is a distinctive green, with tiny purplish seeds surrounding a white core, may be eaten raw or cooked.

The history of the kiwifruit began in the Chang Kiang Valley of China. Called Yang Tao, it was considered a delicacy by the great Khans who relished the fruit's brilliant flavor and emerald-green color.
