Rough and woolly on the outside but soft on the inside, the taste of this green coloured juicy pulp, dotted with lots of little black pips is quite intense. You first taste the sweetness when you bite it, then a slight sour aftertaste, an unexpected but extremely refreshing contrast.

Due to its sweetness and soft pulp, Sweeki Kiwis are referred to as a spoon fruit, one of the few that can be eaten without peeling.

It will easily come off the peel and taste truly delicious, as scrumptious as a dessert!

This Chilean Sweeki Kiwi, which is usually harvested between February and March, usually makes a long journey to Malaysia and tends to be hard when it arrives. However, by leaving it at room temperature on the kitchen counter, the fruit will then soften, ripen and taste sweeter. To accelerate its ripening, the kiwifruit can be placed in a brown bag together with an apple or a banana. The ethylene gas produced by the ripening fruit, will induce ripening on the kiwifruit. Additionally, the longer shelf life of Chilean Kiwifruit is conducive for the consumer to also stockpile it because it keeps perfectly in the fridge for a couple of weeks.
