National fruit of China

Day 16. What I ate.

Did you know that the actinidin in kiwifruits is what makes your mouth and tongue all sore?  Well, technically, it's an allergy to the actinidin, which I might have a mild form of.  That doesn't stop me from eating them though!  And, they are now known as kiwifruits because of Kiwi birds in New Zealand!  Before that, they were known by a variety of Chinese names. 

The more you know!
