Kiwi Berries / Kiwibes … A New Find And Delicious Treat!

The first evening we spent at the “De Vreemde Vogel” (The Strange Bird) in Vlaadingen, we decided to have a combined family picnic dinner. One of the contributions that our friends bought to the table was something that I have never seen before. It’s a teeny tiny kiwifruit, hairless and going by the name of “kiwibes” which literally translates into English as “kiwi berries”. I haven’t seen them since in my local supermarket, but since we went later in the summer it is possible that these have a limited season and of course since they are new, they are probably not yet produced in large volumes anyway. Either way I will be on the lookout for these in the future because they are sweet and totally delicious. A quick rinse and they are ready to eat, no peeling no mess, just a mouthful of deliciousness! If ever you see them I highly recommend that you give them a try.

  1. There are 60 or so varieties of kiwi fruit in the world but I think we only ever get like one kind in the USA. We were able to try five or six kinds when we were in China (kiwi fruit are actually native to China!) and some of them were so much tastier than what we get here. I hope we get these kiwi berries at some point because they look quite tasty but I’m not gonna hold my breath…
