kiwifruit or kiwi fruit

What is it?

The kiwi is an odd little fruit. It’s small, egg-shaped, and covered in a fine layer of soft brown hair. Inside, its flesh is bright green and studded with tiny, black edible seeds. Kiwis have a unique flavor—bright, tropical, and decidedly sweet-tart.

How to prep:

There are two ways to eat kiwi. The fuzzy brown skin is not edible, so you can either halve the kiwi and scoop out the flesh with a spoon, or you can peel and slice the fruit.

How to store:

Allow unripe kiwis to soften at room temperature. Ripe kiwis can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three weeks.
