Although they are available all year round, Kiwifruits are a winter fruit and are at their best during this time. They have a green flesh with little black edible seeds. They have an invigorating, fresh taste packed with vitamins and minerals.
The kiwi fruit is a highly nutritious fruit:
Kiwifruits are best eaten when they are firm, but not rock hard. They should give way slightly to pressure which will usually indicate the sweeter tasting fruit. Avoid kiwis that are soft or with shriveled skins.
Kiwis that are firm to the touch have not reached their peak of sweetness and therefore should be left a few days at room temperature to ripen. They should be kept away from direct sunlight or heat.
Harris Farm Markets have a great range of delicious, fresh and firm kiwifruits. If you wanted to go organic, we also recommend organic Gold Kiwifruit, Kiwi (New Zealand)
