arguta…

…obviously there are probably a million species of fruit and vegetables that i have never seen or heard of…today i learned a new one.

Felicità is a local producer here in Biella who comes to the courtyard in Cittadellarte once a week with whatever is in season on her land to sell to all of us who work here. Today she brought some Arguta. It’s like a small kiwi, it’s very sweet and you eat it whole without peeling, it’s also known as hardy kiwifruit, kiwi berry, baby kiwi, dessert kiwi or cocktail kiwi and grows in a vine like the regular kiwi. Its very hardy and can withstand gradual drops to cold temperatures (for those of you thinking of growing it)…and it tastes really good…
