Storage Tips

Zespri RubyRed™ Kiwifruit must be handled with care, due to its delicate skin and softer flesh. While sunlight is an integral ingredient in growing our fruit, it is not wanted to keep them fresh. Store both unripe and ripened kiwifruit at one or two degrees Celsius (35 degrees Fahrenheit).

If they are very firm, you can place them on the counter to ripen, but avoid unusual heat and direct sunlight. Zespri RubyRed™ ripen very quickly, so don’t forget about them!
