For today's Geo Quiz -- we're on the trail of a sweet fruit that goes by the name: Chinese gooseberries.
Gooseberries have been cultivated in China for centuries. They grow on vines especially in the mountainous areas along the middle reaches of the Yangzte River.

They arrived on US shores in the early 1900's. Back around 1950, someone had the brilliant idea of renaming the fruit?
First they came up with the name MELONETTE...but who wants to eat something called a melonette?
Then they drew inspiration from the indigenous New Zealand bird: the kiwi.
So call it what you like, but for our quiz...we want to know where the fruit with brown fuzzy skin and bright green insides comes from?
China, New Zealand, Chile, France, Greece, Italy, and the U.S. - all grow kiwis. But which country is the world's leading producer?
Farmers there call it green gold.
We'll crown you kiwi king if you come up with the answer.
