Kiwi Berries

Kiwi berries are one of the most exciting new fruits to come into the produce market in years. About the size of a grape, kiwi berries are a small variety of kiwi fruit that have a smooth, edible skin. The fuzz-free exterior makes it easy to pop this berry-like fruit into your mouth as a quick and delicious snack. They are also great in fruit salads! Kiwi berries are packed with flavor… but they have a short season, so get them while you can!

PACKAGING

Kiwi berries are packaged and sold like our other berries—in clear, molded plastic clamshells that fit right in with other berries in the display case. We offer them in traditional 6 oz. clamshells and 125 gram clamshells.

 

HEALTH

Hurst’s kiwi berries are rich in vitamin C and naturally low in fat, cholesterol and sodium. They are also high in fiber and a great source of potassium, vitamin E and magnesium.
DISPLAY & HANDLING

Display kiwi berries alongside other berries. Cut a few in half to showcase their beautiful and familiar interior. Sample them with toothpicks for a quick taste sensation (and to demonstrate that the skin does not need to be removed). Creating a “berry patch” display with Hurst’s kiwi berries and other berries can encourage impulse buying.

Kiwi berries should be stored and displayed in dry refrigeration. The berries should not be damp because moisture speeds up the rate of decay. Shelf life, once they reach your market, is 7 to 14 days. For best flavor, they should be consumed within one week. Kiwi berries are ripe when the berry feels soft to the touch.
