Are you from around here?
December 21, 2009
BC is the only place in Canada where kiwi grows. I don’t think of kiwi as a local, seasonal fruit. It seems odd to me that we can grow them in Vancouver. But look, here they are, all emerald-bright and sparkly inside casual, bristly jackets. Kiwi are originally from China and have been grown here for decades. They are loaded with fibre and are higher in vitamin C than oranges. You can put them into a smoothie or to smarten up a crisp fruit salad. These ones are from the Winter Farmers Market at the Wise Hall. Maybe you’ll find kiwi at the next market, on January 16th. There’s a lot to look forward to with a fresh, new year approaching.
