Small fuzzless kiwi
I saw these small kiwis, Actinidia arguta 'Issai' in the store the other day and decided to try them. They're the size of a grape and are much easier to eat than the fuzzy ones because you don't have to peel them. The taste is much the same but more muted, sweeter and less acidic with a tough skin. When cut open they look like miniature kiwi.
I let it sit at room temperature overnight and the taste has improved - much more like a regular kiwi.
If you like kiwis give them a try. Supposed to contain a lot of vitamin C too so its a healthy snack.
I'm trying an experiment posting photos using Photobucket so I hope it works. Uploading pictures to Photobucket is much faster than Blogger and easy as copying the tag line and pasting in the post so here goes. The preview shows the photo so I hope when I publish it, it will still be there.
Well, it worked but I need to find out how to size the photo to better fit the format.
Update: If there's a little give when squeezing the kiwi you know it's ripe and has a fuller taste. These are very handy for snacking as there's no preparation i.e. peeling.
