SunGold kiwis are sweet and juicy with golden yellow flesh and smooth skin. When selecting a SunGold kiwi remember to choose one that has firm and smooth skin.

SunGold kiwifruit are tender, refreshing and usually ready to be eaten straight away. To slow down the ripening process, keep them in the fridge away from other fruit. On the other hand, to speed the ripening process up, store at room temperature in a paper bag with apples, oranges bananas or pears, but away from sunlight.
