EATING AND STORAGE EATING AND STORAGE

Is the skin edible?

Yes! You can eat the whole of your Zespri Kiwi, including the skin. What’s more, the skin is extremely rich in fibre. If you’re not too keen on the fine hairs on the Zespri Green, simply brush them off before you take a bite. And as with applies, pears and any other fruit you eat unpeeled, make sure you rinse the kiwi first.

Can I freeze a kiwi?

Yes! Freezing is a very easy way of keeping fruit and vegetables for as long as possible. You can also put kiwis in the freezer, for use subsequently in the preparation of delicious smoothies, desserts or other dishes.
