Did you know? The organic gold kiwi has a smooth, bronze skin, a pointed cap at one end and distinctive golden yellow flesh with a less tart and more tropical flavour than green kiwifruit. It has a higher market price than green kiwifruit. It is less hairy than the green cultivars, so can be eaten whole after rubbing off the thin, fluffy coat. While the skin of kiwifruit is often removed before serving, it is completely edible. Kiwi fruit is a rich source of vitamin C. Its potassium content by weight is slightly less than that of a banana. It also contains vitamins A and E. The skin is a good source of flavonoid antioxidants. The kiwi fruit seed oil contains on average 62% alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid.
Sure, eating carrots is good for your eyesight. Having the odd organic gold kiwi can boost eye health too since it has been speculated as playing a role in the prevention of macular degeneration.
The organic gold kiwi is also often regarded as a nice dietary inclusion for those who are weight-concious due to it being low in calories.
