Homegrown Organic Farms Builds Anticipation for its First Kiwi Berry Season; Scott Mabs, Stephen Paul, and Doug Perkins Detail
PORTERVILLE, CA - If you haven’t heard of kiwi berries before, well, you’re in luck. Homegrown Organic Farms (HGO) is bringing kiwi berries to your produce aisles this season, and you don’t want to miss out on this limited-time offering.
“Kiwi berries are one of the most exciting new fruits to come into the produce market in years,” Scott Mabs, Chief Executive Officer, stated. “We are excited to share this unique berry that merges innovation, taste, and nutrition with our valued partners.”
Introduced as part of the merger between HGO and HBF International, this upcoming kiwi berry season is generating excitement as the grower prepares for harvest. Packed with all the sweetness without the fuzz, the kiwi berries promise a burst of flavor and nutritional benefits that consumers won’t want to miss.
Coming in at about the size of a plump grape, kiwi berries have edible skin and wield a punch of flavor that’s hard to resist. Patience is a virtue with this fruit, noted the release, as finding the perfect ripeness is key—the softer the berry, the sweeter the taste!
“The arrival of kiwi berry season is an event that stirs unparalleled excitement among fruit enthusiasts,” Stephen Paul, Category Director, commented on the newest offering. “Its distinctive taste and remarkable versatility make it a must-try for all.”
Available in 4.4, 6, and 16 oz clamshells, the tantalizing fruit has a short but sweet season, which is sure to captivate curious taste buds and nourish health-conscious consumers. Kiwi berries offer a plethora of health benefits and are loaded with nutrients, vitamins, fiber, and minerals while being low in fat, cholesterol, and sodium.
“The collaboration from our merger has allowed us to bring this exceptional fruit to a wider audience,” Doug Perkins, Business Development Manager for Berries, shared. “We are ready to support continued growth in the category with varietal innovations and development as popularity and demand increase.”
HGO’s newest berry offering can be loaded from its Sheridan, Oregon, or Kingsburg, California facilities. Early reservations can be made now, with the first shipments anticipated to go out the week of September 18.
