Kiwi berries are one of the most exciting new fruits to come into the produce market in years. About the size of a grape, kiwi berries are a small variety of kiwi fruit that have a smooth, edible skin. The fuzz-free exterior makes it easy to pop this berry-like fruit into your mouth as a quick and delicious snack. Kiwi berries are best to eat when soft – the softer the berry the sweeter the taste. They are also great in fruit salads! Kiwi berries are packed with flavor… but they have a short season, so get them while you can!
Hurst’s kiwi berries are rich in vitamin C and naturally low in fat, cholesterol and sodium. They are also high in fiber and a great source of potassium, vitamin E and magnesium.
HANDLING & STORAGE
- Kiwi berries should not be damp because moisture speeds up the rate of decay.
- Shelf life, once they reach your market, is 7 to 14 days.
- For best flavor, they should be consumed within one week.
- Kiwi berries are ripe when the berry feels soft to the touch.
