Cute fruit..the Kiwi Berry.

I never heard of them before picking up a basket recently and now I'm hooked. Apparently they are something fairly new and they're delicious just like a larger fuzzy Kiwi, only "fuzzless" and a lot more convenient like other berries.
Imagine them cut in half and mixed with other berries!
Anyway, they are in season right now so if you see them, don't hesitate!
I'm I the last one to know about them?

Let me guess, they are available at your local Whole Paycheck Market or Mugger Joe's, for the price of caviar?

Haaa...glad you asked. I got them at the dollar store where I buy nearly all my produce. Yep, they were a buck and I drove all the way back to buy lots more.

Wow... but there are no dollar stores near me. I'm surprised we even have a Walmart in town.

As a kiwi we grew up with these but called them Chinese gooseberries. I don't know when it changed to kiwi fruit but I guess someone in marketing had a hand in it. I love them. My grandkids eat them all the time.

Just remember, some poor Chinese 7 year old has to shave all of those young kiwi fruit for like $1.39 a day.

Kind of like Chilean Sea Bass, a pricey fish that is neither Chilean, nor a bass. It was previously known as toothfish, a type of cod. Marketing makes/ruins everything.

I sadly remember the days when flat-iron steak was dirt cheap. Now it rivals choice ribeye for cost per pound.

If these mini-kiwis get popular, say goodbye to dollar store prices. You should keep quiet about them, KL. Keep them under the marketing radar.

Oh, here we go; ol' Hemmingway is back.

Toothfish, really? Do they have little fish dentists?

Dr Patagonia, DDS, I guess.

He's got a nice practice, drives an SL. Quite a catch.

Did I hit a nerve (yes, a dentist pun)?

Are you a Chilean Sea Bass fan?
