Buying Tips

Choose semi-firm, unblemished fruit with uniform skin.


Although there are approximately ten varieties of kiwi fruit, the ones found in the market are generally the large, egg-sized, sweet, green kiwi. However, a less common gold kiwi is also available. Sweeter and a little smaller than the green kiwi, the gold kiwi can be identified by its bronze skin and its bright yellow fruit inside.
