KIWIFRUIT - MINI-KIWIFRUIT

Grape-Sized Kiwifruit:
Longer Season Ahead?

Kiwifruit that's sold in supermarkets coast to coast has a lesser-known, grape-sized cousin called hardy kiwifruit. The mini-kiwi is fuzzless, but inside it has the same sweet-tart, green flesh and tiny, black seeds as its egg-sized relative.

The leading kind of small kiwifruit that's grown in the United States ripens in mid-September and can be stored for only a few weeks. That's why scientists working at the ARS National Clonal Germplasm Repository and at the ARS Horticultural Crops Research Laboratory, both in Corvallis, Ore., are developing a slightly larger, earlier-ripening version of the junior-sized kiwifruit.
