Kiwis are also a good source of folate, high in antioxidant vitamin C and a great source of vitamin C. Plus they’re easy to pop into your lunch bag for a quick snack at any time. SunGold kiwis are the golden versions of the fruit you know and love. They contain twice the vitamin C of a 100-gram orange and as much potassium as a medium-sized banana. Both varieties are available from mid-summer to January.
