Best to Buy

Choose semifirm, unblemished fruit with uniform skin. Kiwis sweeten with age but should be eaten before they become mushy; they will ferment if left too long. Refrigerate when soft.

Prep & Store

Simply remove the fuzzy peel and eat. Slice the fruit to make beautiful garnishes on cakes, cocktails, cheese plates, or breakfast cereals.

Quick & Easy Recipe

For a vitamin C–packed treat, cut kiwi into chunks, mix with berries and other favorite fruit. Let sit for an hour to blend juices, stir, and serve.

Nutrition Notes

Kiwis are an excellent source of vitamin C.
