I was out on Hampstead Heath yesterday for work (honest). I decided to walk back towards Swiss Cottage for my weekly swim when something made me stop in my tracks. I don't think I've ever seen a kiwi vine in flower in real life, and certainly wasn't expecting to see one in London.

But this vine was so healthy looking and laden that it hung right over the pavement, which why I noticed them. See the photo's below.

I picked some and will put a photo up. They were still hard and I assumed unripe, so they're waiting for tasting in the fruit bowl.... (may bring some to the get together on the 11 December)

Wow - I had no idea that they even grew on a vine, let alone that they could grow in this country...  Did you pick any?
