This strange hybrid fruit is about to shake up the world
Introducing: the kiwi berry.
Yes, you read that right. For a fruit that's no bigger than a grape, these itsy bitsy kiwi berries certainly pack the flavor. They're said to be sweeter than regular kiwis - and that's not even the best part. They don't have the same fuzzy skin so there's no peeling necessary!
Kiwi berries offer way more than cuteness overload. They're bursting with antioxidants and other nutrients. So for a healthy, on-the-go snack, this fruit might be your best bet.
You may be wondering: why am I just hearing about this now??
Although countries like the UK have started to grow them for the market, kiwi berries have not yet been commercialized in America. But there's still hope! Research is underway by academic institutions and private companies to make our kiwi berry dream a reality.
So keep your eyes peeled - they may hit the shelves in the near future.
