Where does come from?
The kiwi fruit emoji depicts a kiwi fruit (also called the Chinese gooseberry) sliced in half, showing its brown skin and green flesh riddled with black seeds.
It debuted in 2016 under Unicode 9.0 alongside other fruit and veggie emoji including the avocado 🥑 and potato 🥔 emoji.
The emoji is relatively uniform on all platforms (brown skin, green flesh, black seeds). WhatsApp features a kiwi half with a slice cut off.
Who uses ?
People use the kiwi fruit emoji on social media and text messages to refer to the actual fruit and its juice, often paired with other fruit-based emoji when discussing nutritious but delicious snacks.

The country of New Zealand is home to a flightless bird called the kiwi, which has become a national symbol and nickname for a New Zealander, especially athletes. Because New Zealand historically exported lots of Chinese gooseberries, the fruit was dubbed the kiwi. And so, kiwi fruit emoji can represent all things New Zealand.
Had a lovely day meeting @walking_north for the first time! 💕You were a blast to hang out with, I hope you enjoyed New Zealand! 🇳🇿🏉🥝
