Kiwi Berries: The Fruit you Didn’t Know You Were Missing

Sliced kiwi berry

Kiwi berries are like a cute little kiwis minus the fuzz. They’re about the size of grape but bursting with sweet kiwi flavor when ripe. Give them a squeeze and when they’re soft (maybe even a little wrinkly) you’ll know they’re nice and sweet. Avoid them while firm because they’ll taste very acidic.

When can I find them?

They have a really short season. You should be able to find them from September to October. Maybe a little longer if you’re in the area where they’re produced. Basically if you see them in your store, grab them up before they’re gone.

Let’s talk nutrition

They’re rich in vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and magnesium. According to hpfberries a 6oz serving (which is about 3/4 cup) contains 30 grams of carbohydrate, 13 grams of sugar, 8 grams of fiber, 2 grams of protein, and 1 gram of fat. They are cholesterol and sodium free.

Where are they produced?

The kiwi berries I found were produced in Oregon. They tend to grow in the Pacific Northwest of the US.

I found mine at Sam’s Club. You may be able to find them there or your regular grocery store.
