  9. 9. Actinidia deliciosa is native to Southern China. Originally known as Yang Tao, [3] it is declared as the "National Fruit" of the People's Republic of China . [4] Other species of Actinidia are also found in India and Japan and north into southeastern Siberia . Cultivation spread from China in the early 20th century, when seeds were introduced to New Zealand by Mary Isabel Fraser , the principal of Wanganui Girls' College, who had been visiting mission schools in Yichang, China. [5] The seeds were planted in 1906 by a Wanganui nurseryman, Alexander Allison , with the vines first fruiting in 1910. The familiar cultivar Actinidia deliciosa 'Hayward' was developed by Hayward Wright in Avondale , New Zealand around 1924. It was initially grown in domestic gardens, but commercial planting began in the 1940s. Italy is now the leading producer of kiwifruit in the world, followed by New Zealand, Chile , France , Greece , Japan and the United States . In China, kiwifruit was traditionally collected from the wild, but until recently China was not a major producing country. [6] In China, it is grown mainly in the mountainous area upstream of the Yangtze River. It is also grown in other areas of China, including Sichuan. [7]
