Kiwis are also packed with potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, calcium, iron, and zinc.

Strawberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
