    Gold kiwi is Actinida chinensis while green kiwi are Actinida deliciosa, so they are separate species.

    It's eater beware though, as according to that paper above, gold kiwi does share other allergens with green and there's no telling which one is bothering you.

    Hmm. Not sure it would be worth trying.


    I am getting so I really hate the forums. It's just the same argument with the same players over and over again. So tediously predictable. I think I need to take a break from MDA. When GMan and I go camping we are going net free which I think will be helpful. Three weeks unplugged.

    One thing about me: I'm contrarian by nature. I'll usually take the least popular stance, just because. Don't take it personally, at the end of the day, I never hold other people's opinions against them, I think that's just silly.

    I hope your camping trip goes well, you sound like you need to be unplugged for a while.

    I have some... issues that keep me from posting much on forums unless I have a very strong opinion on something, or it's about plants. I can talk all day about plants.

    Looks like gold kiwi doesn't have actinidin in it, one of the major allergens of kiwi.
    My problem with mangoes must be in the "something else" category. It's happened too many times to be a once-off accidental cross-contamination or such. And my reaction is worse every time - from "hmm, wonder what that little rash is" 15 years ago, to "shit, even steroids don't fix it readily any more" now. Kind of scary. I have to be really cautious around all things "tropical" in case there is some yummy mango lurking therein, waiting to get me.

    And, of course, they are my favourite fruit. *pouts furiously*

    Hey Quies, thanks for the info on gold kiwis, you clever thing. PB, who knows, you may well like them - they taste similar to the green variety, but with a slightly more tropical/melon-like flavour. But of course if you don't know what allergen causes your problem, there is a risk. I guess I got lucky.
    I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

    Do you have severe allergies to poison ivy, oak, or sumac? In my experience, people who are allergic to mangos, but not the flesh are very severely allergic to poison ivy as mango doesn't tend to be as strong. If you are not, then that does put your allergy to the flesh squarely in the something else category.

    ------------------

    Just found this. Looks like in addition to delayed contact dermatitis, there is a rare immediate allergy from eating mango flesh:

    Consumption of canned or packaged mango too can precipitate an allergic reaction as allergenicity of mango nectar persists even after heating, enzymatic degradation and mechanically caused tissue degradation.

    I am really loving the "ignore" feature. Keeps me sane!

    Just a tad presumptuous aren't you, assuming my dissatisfaction with this board is all about you?

    Plants are such good companions.

    Q sure knows her stuff when it comes to plants. Good to have an expert around here.

    Yeah, I think I need a civilization break.

    maybe, but it's at least a tad bit about me.

    also, I share in your need for a break from civilization. most people I encounter daily disgust me.
