Fruit plays a big role in our house and trying new ones are always a focus.
From fresh local fruit to tropical fruit of all kinds, you will certainly find a wide variety in our fruit bowl.
I personally love kiwis and have always thought – wouldn’t it be nice to have a kiwi that didn’t need to be peeled.
Yes ok – you can eat the skin and it’s good for your but, I personally don’t like the texture.
Then I stumbled upon what I thought had to be the dream fruit.
A small berry that when sliced, looked exactly like a kiwi! It’s real!
Its edible skin stays green even when ripe. It definitely stands out next to other berries such as raspberries, blueberries, and blackcurrants.
This is like no other berry I’ve seen before, and I must admit I was excited.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on some and do some tasting and try them out in my normal day-to-day recipes.
They are amazing!
Juicy, sweet and their texture is so very similar to a kiwi. The skin is thin and tender – making this a one to two-bite berry.
In only 100 grams of these delicious berries, you will receive 65% of your daily vitamin C and almost 15% of the daily recommended grams of fibre!
If you’re still lucky you may find them in your local grocery store, but their season is short so be sure to look for them soon.
You can use them anywhere you would use kiwis or berries.
