Kiwi

If you had never seen a kiwi before, you'd never guess that underneath their rather dull exterior lies a radiant jade green or bright gold interior. One slice into this little egg sized fruit will reveal brilliant colored flesh with tiny black seeds that add texture to its berry-like flavor. Choose solid unblemished fruit that yields to gentle pressure and store at room temperature. Kiwis boast more vitamin C than citrus and add color and sophistication to any fruit salad. A recent study found that ounce for ounce, kiwis are the most nutrient dense fruit. For more information on goldkiwi fruit, please see our gold kiwifruit page.
