How to buy a pair of kalkis from Melbourne’s Kalki Fashion brand
A Melbourne fashion boutique is hoping to change people’s minds about the kalkia, its most popular and highly coveted fruit.
The Kalkis for Kids charity is one of a number of charities in Australia to be featured on Kalkie.com, the web-based fashion site.
It is the first time the Kalkies for Kids brand has been featured on the site.
“We have been inundated with requests for this, and so we thought it would be a good idea to put it on the website,” Kalky’s marketing manager, Tanya Jones, told news.com.au.
“When we launched the website we had just four staff members, but now we have a team of 12 people.”
Jones said the Karkis for Children Foundation was the first charity on the internet to receive Kalkia donations.
“People are starting to realise the fruit is really delicious, so it makes sense for us to get involved,” she said.
Jones said Kalkys were so popular, the Kanki was once dubbed the “most popular fruit in the world”.
“People would take their kids out to eat and they would be like, ‘Oh, I’ve got this fruit, can I have a taste?'” she said.
“So now people can go out and buy a kalkie, and if they have a kid, they can have a kanki and eat it.”
It’s just a great product for kids.
“Kalkies are grown in the wild, harvested from the seeds and the pulp of the Kani, which is found in the forests of Papua New Guinea and Indonesia.
They are also known as “bamboos”, and they are the only fruit that are grown locally.
The kalkies produce a nutty, nutty taste and are usually eaten as a snack.”
They are really easy to grow and to store,” Jones said.”
You can have one in the fridge for a week and it will keep well.
“Jones added that Kalkias were a staple in Kalkier’s community.”
Every week we’d have a little kalk in the garden,” she added.”
Now people can buy kalkias at the supermarket, and people who have a child will go out to buy one.
“Jones told newscom.com-au the Kinkys for Kids foundation would also be working with Kalkietickets, a non-profit that has launched a campaign to get people to donate their kalk.
