In Matthew 7:15-20, God is using fruit to warn us against false teachers. He is telling us that just as you identify a tree by the fruit it is bearing, you can also detect a false teacher by the way he lives his life.
A kiwi vine will never produce apples or grapes or any other fruit, it will always produce kiwifruit. It bears fruit true to its nature.
There are several varieties of kiwi plants. The variety that I planted in my yard a few years ago is different than the variety found in the grocery store, which is brown and has a furry surface. The skin on the variety that I am growing is smooth and green. It is smaller than the ones normally purchased in the store. When growing this variety of kiwi you need a male and a female plant even though the female is the only one that produces the fruit.
The kiwi fruit is low in calories, averaging 46 per fruit. It is also rich in vitamin C, potassium, vitamin E and has a small amount of vitamin A. The skin is tart and edible as well as rich in fiber.
You may not like to eat the skin of the kiwi and desire to remove it. If so, I would like to share with you an easy way to remove the skin without peeling it off with a knife.
Here is what you need:
Remove both ends with your knife. (Make sure to remove enough of the end to get the hard core off.)
After you get both ends off, take a spoon and run it gently under the skin of the kiwi and around the inside between the fruit and the skin as shown below.
After you have gone all the way around the fruit with the spoon, make sure the fruit is loosened from the skin then gently push the fruit from the skin as shown.
Slice in desired thickness.
You can serve it as an individual dish, on a fruit tray, or mix in a fruit salad.
(The leaves in the picture are off my kiwi plants.)
I enjoy the flavor and health benefits of kiwi. Its rich green color with its black seeds add to any fruit dish. My grandchildren really enjoy having kiwi when they come for visits.
I am glad I learned to remove the skin using a spoon. It is less messy and saves more of the fruit. If using a spoon to remove the skin is new to you, I hope you will try it and see for yourself how easy it is.
