History

Kiwifruit is native to China and was originally referred to as the “Chinese gooseberry.” It was renamed kiwifruit for its resemblance to New Zealand’s national bird, the brown and fuzzy kiwi bird.

Cut & Scoop

Kiwifruit becomes a 10-second snack with the cut and scoop method: simply cut in half and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Other great ways to eat kiwifruit include:

  • Add to any beverage you can think of, including smoothies, mojitos, and margaritas.

  • Make a kiwifruit salsa for fish or steak.

  • Add to salads.

  • Add to overnight oats, parfaits, or chia pudding.
