How can you tell if a kiwi is ripe?


To tell if your kiwifruit is ripe, gently press on the fruit and if it gives a little then it is ripe. If you’d like to quickly ripen your kiwi, place it in a brown paper bag with other fruit to speed up the ripening process. If you want to slow down the ripening process, store your kiwi in the fridge away from other fruits. A few ways to enjoy your ripe kiwifruit:

  • Cut in half and scoop out the inside with a spoon, or slice it and enjoy fresh!
  • Blend it into a smoothie with other fruits.
  • Make a tropical salsa.
  • Use it to top a salad.

Here are some tasty kiwifruit recipes to get you started.
