How to Store and Preserve our Italian Organic Kiwis
1. Kiwis tend to ripen after being harvested and thus, if stored in cool, dry and dark places they can last for several weeks. If kept at room temperature, they ripen in about a week, whereas if kept in a paper bag together with other fruit they ripen faster.
2. If you want to slow down their ripening process, we recommend you store them in a cool and dry place, by avoiding sunlight and humidity. If you want to preserve them for longer periods, we suggest you store them in the refrigerator.
3. In order to fasten their ripening process, you should keep them in a paper bag together with other fruit (apples, pears or bananas)
4. You can understand if a kiwi is ready to eat: its texture must be soft but not mushy
