Handle this delicate fruit with care, as they become very soft when ripe. What lies beneath the large, egg-sized, fuzzy brown skin is a wealth of brilliant, jade-green flesh. Kiwis have a juicy, slightly tart flavor reminiscent of melon and fresh berries.
Kiwis have more Vitamin C than citrus and can be used in marinades as a meat tenderizer. Beautiful and eye-catching when sliced and used as a garnish, the crunchy, tiny black seeds add a wonderful texture and are perfectly designed to be eaten!
Melissa’s Kiwis are hand selected for excellent quality. Harvested when ripe and firm, choose solid, unblemished fruit. With a very long shelf life, Kiwi can be refrigerated for two or three weeks and then stored at room temperature for a few days until they yield to gentle pressure. Kiwis continue to get juicier when kept at room temperature.
