You Hold the Kiwi to my Heart


Summer is the time when fruits and berries are plentiful. Today I am partnering with Zespri Kiwifruit to share four different ways that you can enjoy their delicious SunGold Kiwifruit. What is a SunGold Kiwifruit you ask? Well it is just like a green kiwifruit but different…  🙂

Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit

SunGold Kiwifruit contain more than three times the amount of Vitamin C found in oranges and they contain as much potassium as a banana. Did I mention they are totally yummy?!?

The SunGold Kiwifruit is sweeter than a green kiwifruit and tastes like a cross between a mango & a strawberry.

SunGold Kiwifruit are different than green kiwi fruit. I have photographed them side by side here so you can see the difference on the outside and on the inside of the kiwifruit. I love trying new fruits that I find at the market. These don’t disappoint! Look for Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit at your local supermarket from May to October.

The SunGold Kiwifruit has a smooth, hairless skin and juicy yellow flesh.

Two kiwifruit contain about the same amount of fibre as a bowl of bran flakes.

Here are four different ways that you can enjoy a SunGold Kiwifruit:

#1 Cut. Scoop. Enjoy!

The easiest way to eat is a kiwifruit is in the skin. You simply cut it in half and scoop it out with a spoon. I have been eating a kiwifruit this way since I was pre-school age. My mom used to pack a cut kiwifruit in my lunch with a spoon. Everyone in my class was always intrigued.  🙂

#4 Fruit Bowl in a Pineapple Boat

This is just what you need to get the party started.  I don’t think you will find anyone that won’t smile when given a fruit bowl served like this.  🙂
