How to store the fresh kiwi fruit?
Once you take kiwis home, you may wonder where is the best place to store kiwifruits. You should base it on the kiwis’ condition and how you use them and choose one of the best ways below to preserve your kiwis.
Store The Whole Kiwis
To keep kiwis fresh and prevent them from moisture loss, you should store entire kiwis. Here are some ways to store them:
The best way to store kiwis is to place them at room temperature, at 32-35 degrees Fahrenheit. You should keep them away from direct heat or sunlight.
Suppose you need to speed up the ripening process. In that case, you should store kiwis at room temperature in a paper bag or plastic box and be near or together with ethylene-producing fruits ( apples, bananas, avocados, tomatoes).
Just in case you place kiwis with all your fruits in a fruit bowl or counter, keep in mind to not layer too much and put kiwis on the top of them.
In The Fridge
When your kiwis ripen enough or you do not want to eat them for the next couple of days, think of storing them in your fridge.
Putting the ripe kiwis in the refrigerator, you can keep them fresh for 5 to 10 days and up to 4 weeks with unripe kiwis without changing their taste.
