BerryWorld: Kiwi Berries

Berry world kiwi berries

Kiwi berries are now in season until October. If you haven’t heard of a kiwi berry, your mind is about to be blown. Kiwi berries are mini kiwis roughly the size of a 1p coin that you can eat whole without peeling. They can be used in salads, drinks, bakes or eaten straight from the punnet. Kiwi berries are considered a super fruit and are packed with more Vitamin C than an orange. If you are a journalist and would like to sample some, please Get in touch.

Chantenay: New Season

Whether you’re dipping them in hummus, adding them to them a salad, blitzing them into juice or roasting them in the oven, Chantenay carrots can be enjoyed any time.
