Meet the kiwiberry
Our kiwiberry team and their research have been getting a lot of press lately. We are thrilled that both growers and consumers are getting excited about kiwiberry and its potential for commercial production in Minnesota.
If you've read any of our posts here, or come across articles in the media about kiwiberry, you might be wondering where this fruit comes from, what the plant looks like, and how it grows. We created a video to answer those very questions. Whether you're a commercial grower, a home gardener, or a fruit-loving consumer we hope you'll find this plant and its fruit as fascinating as we do!
What they're saying
It's not everyday that fruit research makes it into the news, so when it does we get pretty excited. Check out what these various media outlets have been sharing about our kiwiberry research and researchers.
