What are the differences between the Green and Gold Kiwifruit?

The green kiwi has a fuzzy brown skin and oval shape. Gold kiwifruit, in contrast, has smooth, hairless skin that’s a nice golden-brown color. Green kiwifruit has, as one would expect, a green flesh with black seeds. The flesh of our golden kiwifruit is a vibrant yellow color with a smaller core and fewer seeds. The green kiwifruit has a fresh, tangy-sweet taste. The SunGold kiwi has a tropically sweet taste. 

The gold kiwi is usually ripe and ready to eat when you buy it and gets sweeter as it softens. The green kiwi can be firmer when purchased, so it is important to let them ripen at room temperature. A ripe kiwi should give to slight pressure like a peach or an avocado. Once kiwifruit is ripe, it can be kept in the refrigerator – about a week for Green Kiwifruit and about 2 weeks for Gold Kiwifruit.
