How can I store kiwifruit?

Michael T. Murray, ND
Naturopathic Medicine

Kiwifruit can be left to ripen for a few days to a week at room temperature, away from exposure to sunlight and heat. Placing the fruit in a paper bag with an apple, banana, or pear will help to speed its ripening process. Ripe kiwifruit can be stored either at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Store it away from other fruits and vegetables that emit ethylene gas, which causes kiwifruit to become overripe quickly.
