One day, I was shopping at Whole Foods and I saw a small display of Kiwi Berries (Actinidia arguta). I had never seen or heard of such a thing and I had no idea what to expect, but I love trying new foods, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try something new! I brought them home and cut one open to see that it’s exactly like a miniature kiwi fruit with no hair on the outside!

I was pleasantly surprised, and glad I made this impulse buy!
