You could decide the future of kiwiberries in NH

DURHAM— Have you ever tried a kiwiberry? Well now's your chance.

During September, the University of New Hampshire's kiwiberry research team will have kiwiberry samplings at farmer markets across the state. Researchers will use the public's feedback to assess their breeding goals and consumer demands.

Kiwiberries are known to adapt well to the region, have a nice appearance, intense and complex flavor profiles and high levels of bioactive compounds. These berries have potential as a high-value crop in the Northeast and have been grown in backyards and private gardens of New England for 140 years.

Despite their long history of crop, there is virtually still no commercial production.
