Fresh & Organic: Kiwi Berries

Last week, I heard my co-worker raving about Kiwi Berries, a fruit I had never even heard of. The botanical name is Actinidia arguta and they are also known as Hardy kiwifruit, baby kiwi, dessert kiwi or cocktail kiwi. I love trying new things, so I was super excited to try one for the first time time this morning.
These vine grown fruits are delicious small grape shaped, smooth skinned (no fuzz) and sweeter than a kiwi. They have five times the vitamin C of an orange, per serving! Kiwi berries are high in fiber, vitamin C, vitamin A and calcium.
