Sungold Kiwi & Broccolette
SUNGOLD KIWI: This amazing fruit has 10x the nutrients of most apples and a bright color perfect for beautiful summer weather. Carrying on with our rainbow theme, these yellow fruits are similar to their green cousins in taste and texture leaning towards the sweet side rather than sour.
BROCCOLETTE: Sometimes called broccolini, this vegetable is a natural hybrid between broccoli rabe and broccoli. Broccoli part of the cabbage vegetable family and broccoli rabe part of the turnip family, are distant relatives. Broccolette has the long stems of broccoli rabe and the dense florets of broccoli.

Veggie Passport is an educational tasting experiment targeted for elementary-aged children that can involve the whole family! The basic concept is to empower kids to inquisitively try new fruits and vegetables and encourage parents to try preparing these veggies in creative ways. Try the vegetable with the mind of a scientist then appreciate how it can be transformed with the mind of a chef!
