Iranian Kiwi
The kiwifruit is a fruit with long history and whose recent rise in popularity reflects a combination of an appreciation for its taste, nutritional value, unique appearance and, surprisingly, its changing name.
Native to China, kiwifruits were originally known as Yang Tao. They were brought to New Zealand from China by missionaries in the early 20th century with the first commercial plantings occurring several decades later. In 1960, they were renamed Chinese Gooseberries.
In 1961, Chinese Gooseberries made their first appearance at a restaurant in the United States and were subsequently "discovered" by an American produce distributor who felt that the U.S. market would be very receptive to this uniquely exotic fruit. She initiated the import of these fruits into the United States in 1962, but to meet what was felt to be burgeoning demand, changed its name from Chinese Gooseberry to kiwifruit, in honor of the native bird of New Zealand, the kiwi, whose brown fuzzy coat resembled the skin of this unique fruit. Currently, Italy, New Zealand, Chile, USA, Japan and of course Iran are among the leading and largest producers of kiwifruit in the world.
Researches and developments to implant Kiwi in Iran began around 50 years ago but commercial cultivate started only by 1984  in northern provinces of Iran in southern part of Caspian sea in Mazandaran, Guilan and Golestan.
Mazandaran province holds majority of production by more than 120,000 metric tone production per annum following by Guilan with more than 80,000 tone. With more than 250,000 Mt production per annum Iran is the 4th largest producer of Kiwi in the world and in term of Export Iran is ranked 8th in global trade of Kiwi fruit. 
Main export markers for Iranian Kiwi fruit are Russia, Iraq ,Turkey, India and Persian gulf states.
