Look for:
kiwi that are firm, yield to gentle pressure and are without blemishes.

kiwi that are hard, moldy, spotted, or shriveled.

Seasonality: Late fall, winter and spring

Storing Kiwi

Ripen at room temperature. Speed up the ripening process by placing kiwis in a paper bag with an apple or banana. Use within a week.

Preparing Kiwi

Rinse well before eating. Peel and chop kiwis or slice in half and scoop out the flesh with a spoon.  The skin is edible, too.
