The kiwi fruit, often shortened to kiwi, is the edible berry of woody vines native to China. In the early 20th century cultivation of the kiwi spread to New Zealand, where it then became popular with British and American servicemen stationed there during the 1940’s. As a result, the fruit became closely associated with the antipodean nation, and took its name from the tailless and long beaked bird that is the country’s symbol.
While its skin may have the brown fuzzy fur reminiscent of the bird, the kiwi fruit flesh has an attractive emerald green colour and a creamy consistency. Its taste is reminiscent of strawberries, melons and bananas, but with a unique sweet and slightly tart twist, making it a popular addition to fruit salads, desserts and drinks.
Mathieu Teisseire Kiwi Syrup delivers the unique and nuanced flavour of this much-loved fruit. With its vibrant green colour and combination of sweet, tart and creamy tastes, this syrup offers a beautifully thirst-quenching finish to cocktails, mocktails, smoothies, fruit punches, sodas and lemonades.
