Kiwi Berries

When I was in the grocery store recently I ran across kiwi berries in the produce section. I had not seen them before and was interested in finding out more about them. They are at their peak in the Fall, mostly September and October.

Kiwi berries are grape-sized with a flavor similar to grocery store kiwifruit though somewhat sweeter. The berries have a thin, smooth skin that is edible and typically they are emerald green in color. The shape can vary from round to elongate. They are higher in vitamin C than oranges and provide other antioxidants, fiber, and essential minerals.

Kiwi berries are grown in areas of the United States with cooler climates. They are the kind of fruit that can withstand very cold temperatures. Once you get them home, you should store kiwi berries in the refrigerator.

I think they would be a nice addition to a lunchbox, salad, or anytime as a snack.

  1. We have planted Kiwi Berry plants several years ago but they never produce. Do you have any suggestions?
