Kiwi Fruit

There is a little brown fruit called a “kiwi”.
Some people call it a “Chinese gooseberry“.
It is shaped like an egg, and very hairy.
It is named after a bird in New Zealand.
They are a tasty treat when they are on hand.
Cut it open, and see it is green inside.
Popularity is something not denied.
Seeds of the fruit are embedded in a ring.
Sweet and tangy juice has this edible thing.
Flavor like strawberries make my taste buds sing.
Found in the tropical Southern Hemisphere,
they grow domestically in abundance here.
When in season, they are much lower in price.
So go to your produce store for something nice.

    This poem makes my mouth water for a special fruit salad my wife makes with kiwi, pineapple, strawberry lime zest and a little sugar. Very nice
