Who knew? (New Jersey)

These are tiny kiwi fruits. They are about the size of a quarter. AND… grown right here in NJ. They taste just like regular size kiwis. I have a flat of then and they are destined to become a kiwi shrub. I hope I can preserve the light green color in the shrub. Who knew kiwis grew in NJ?

WHOOOOOOOOOOA. #MindBlown

Where did you purchase them?

Collingswood farmers market. Fruitwood Farms (famous for their honey) grew them.

I got these in a CSA box last year. Total surprise that they grow in our zone.

I’m totally shocked too! Although a friend had a kiwi vine, I don’t think it ever fruited.

I won’t be planting any because I’m allergic to kiwi fruit and even handling the leaves gives me hives. (as I found out with my friend’s plant) - so if you have to have a food allergy, it’s no so bad with kiwi since they’re so easy to avoid. :upside_down_face: Do like their taste, texture and looks though, would eat them if I could.
