A vine (Actinidia arguta ) that bears small fruit that are related to and look like tiny kiwi. The vine is native to Northern China, Korea and Siberia. The entire fruit can be eaten including the skin and is typically eaten as a raw fruit. Unlike the kiwi the baby kiwi has a smooth skin.
Look for these in specialty markets. Whole Foods stocks them when in season in the fall. You can add these little gems to a fresh salad, or simply eat with thick Greek yogurt.

Don't wash the berries until you are ready to use them because moisture will speed up the rate of decay. You should plan to eat the fruit within one week of purchase. The Kiwi berries are ripe when the berry feels soft to the touch.
