What Berachah does one make on a kiwi berry? It grows on a perennial vine, which can climb very high (ha'etz) or snake along the ground (ha'adamah).

  • It's also supposed to be delicious.

  • Regular kiwi seems to grow on a very very similar plant.

    Hmm, I disagree with the edits (though I understand them). Is it necessary to provide options? Should I also state that it's not one of the five grains and therefore not Mezonoth? I think my question provided all the relevant information, and by leaving it without suggested answers a person is less likely to question why I chose those suggestions to the exclusion of other options.
