When a kiwifruit yields to slight pressure, like a peach, it is ready to eat.
Remember, if our green kiwifruit isn’t yet ripe, we can keep it at room temperature (away from heat and sun) for too long. But when the green kiwifruit becomes ripe (a little soft) we should keep in fridge because it is soon and quite perishable. Ripe kiwifruit normally keep for about one to two weeks.
