Cool Find: Golden Kiwi




I got these kiwi the other day in whole foods and my hubby told me it was the best kiwi he had ever had, so I thought I would recommend them to you, if you havn't already tried them. They really are awesome.
Here's some information from the website

"In the late 1970s, New Zealand Kiwifruit growers began experimenting with the natural development of a golden kiwifruit. Seeds were imported from China, where a female plant was chosen for its yellow flesh and excellent flavor and crossed with a male plant proven to produce large, succulent fruit.

In 1992 one offspring plant from this family was selected and nurtured, resulting in the golden-fleshed kiwifruit now known as ZESPRI™ GOLD Kiwifruit. "

It is is very high in vitamin C, Vitamin E and fiber.

for more information on these delicious and specially cultivated fruits see the website, there are more cool facts and recipes on there...http://www.zesprikiwi.com/goldkiwi.htm


you will love these babies!

oh and I couldn't resist to share this picture my brother in law designed how cute!

  8. I don't think I have ever seen a golden kiwi. I should keep my eyes out for them.
    I enjoy kiwis but probably don't use them as often as I should. I primarily use kiwis in fruit salad. I know you are thinking-"How boring". I need to step it up!

  9. Thanks for following too. The kiwi picture you had really caught my eye. That is my favorite fruit. I could not live without my Zespri kiwi knife/spoon, as silly as that sounds. I eat too many kiwis to not have this, which I picked up from Zepri at FNCE '07.

    I live in the Azores, which is a group of 9 islands in the Atlantic. these are Portugese isalnds, but still 900 miles from Lisbon. It has been cool so far. We have only been here for 2 months and we are stationed here for 2 years. I thought since I can't work as a clinical RD anymore I should find some other things to do, such as blogging. I hope you enjoy my blog.
