It’s me again, and I have the real scoop on kiwi.
Kiwi is a berry.
Got a big fresh kiwi? Cut it in half, use a spoon to scoop out the juicy berry goodness, and eat it. You can eat the fuzz too, but that is not necessarily a popular practice. Feel free to eat the seeds. Everyone’s doing it.
Too busy for utensils to enjoy some delicious kiwi? Well there is a solution for YOU.
Kiwi’s cousin, the BABY KIWI.
Don’t let the name fool you. Baby kiwis are not just immature kiwis. Baby kiwis are a botanical cousin of the bigger brown fuzzy kiwi.

Sometimes baby kiwis are called kiwi berries, but all kiwis are berries. Even big kiwis are berries.
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!!!
BABY KIWIS ARE CONVENIENTLY FUZZ-FREE.
