5 Monkey Peach

5 Monkey Peach

Kiwi fruit is transliterated in Chinese as 奇異果 (qí yì guǒ), literally strange or unusual (奇異) fruit (果).

 

Before kiwi was known as 奇異果 (qí yì guǒ), this native-to-China fruit was called 獼猴桃 (mí hóu táo), literally rhesus monkey (獼猴) peach (桃).

 

The fruit does look something like a hairy monkey!
