Kiwifruit originated in China where it was once considered a delicacy. Kiwi was introduced into North America in the 1960s; since then, many have enjoyed the unique taste of kiwi which blends a combination of strawberries, pineapple and bananas, notes the author of the book, "The World's Healthiest Foods."
