This year, little kiwi fruit are a big deal at Hurst's Berry Farm in Sheridan, Oregon (www.hursts-berry.com). That is, the crop of miniature kiwi fruit is big enough to attract attention. Each grape-size fruit makes a single bite, and its thin, red-green skin is smooth - no more peeling.
Baby kiwi fruit are harvested from mid-September to late October, but you may find them in markets into November. Healthy fruit keep well in containers in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Inside, baby kiwi fruit are as brilliant green as the big guys. Cut into halves for a beautiful addition to this simple dessert.
