What fruit has the vitamin C of an orange, the potassium of half a banana, and the fiber of a half-cup of bran flakes? Hint: It's furry. Answer: Kiwi. Enjoy kiwis by peeling and slicing, or simply cut latitudinally and scoop out green (or yellow) flesh with a spoon.
I try to stay out of agricultural politics. I’d rather support farmers by buying their wonderful produce without having to testify on their behalf. Sometimes, however, circumstances land on your shoulder like a little butterfly—or in this case, a light brown apple moth (LBAM). For the past two years, I’ve been active in opposing California’s quarantine of small farms that find themselves shut down due to a small (and according to the farmers we work with, harmless) leaf-rolling moth.
Sometimes called the New Zealand Rose Apple, it is similar to the Fuji but hails from a Gala-Splendor blend. Limited acreage makes these apples a special treat. Red and crisp, the flesh browns a little when oxidized. That's cracker mate!
