Frequently asked questions about recipes with kiwi?
Store unripe and ripened kiwifruit at 32–35 degrees °F. To ripen, hold fruit at room temperature in a loosely closed paper bag, for two to three days and avoid unusual heat and direct sunlight. Once kiwifruit is ripe and yields to the touch, it should be refrigerated until ready for use.
Kiwi is a strong-growing perennial vine with small leaves and bright red stems, the hardy kiwi can grow to 40 feet in length. If not pruned and trained, the vines will grow up trees and over fences. Once established, plants can live for fifty or more years.
Jerry James Stone is the kiwi peeling guru! Watch the video on his blog post for ALL of his kiwi peeling tips!
1. Take the kiwifruit and trim off the ends. By the way, to select a ripe kiwifruit, using your palm and the pad of your thumb apply light pressure to a kiwi. Do not use your fingertips! Feel for soft squishy spots. The skin should also be taut and not wrinkled.
2. Using a spoon, slide it between the skin and the flesh. (See the video for how to do this.)
