Fresh Kiwi in December are one of the great winter treats in California. This December, Bay View classes received a box of local kiwis from Aptos Kiwi Farm. Students had a marvelous time tasting the kiwis in nutrition class. In the garden, students combined kiwis with tangerines to make a scrumptious kiwi salsa.
