Types of Kiwi

Fuzzy kiwi - the most common type. They are about the size and shape of a large egg. The brown fuzzy skin is edible but most often removed. The flesh is usually bright green with tiny black seeds. Some varieties have golden flesh.

❁ Choose slightly firm, unblemished fuzzy kiwifruit. Size of the fruit does not affect the taste.

❁ Press the outside of the fruit with your thumb. If it gives to a little pressure, it’s ripe. If the kiwi feels hard, it’s not ready to eat but could be ripened at home.
