Kiwifruit is about the size of an egg and has russet-brown thin skin with short, stiff hairs. The kaleidoscope-like almost glistening emerald green pulp is dotted with dark nearly black tiny edible seeds that create the starburst pattern that distinguishes this fruit.
Sweet-tart with a slightly acidic edge, the succulent flavor of this decorative fruit is primarily sweet. Despite the fact that the skin is edible, the fruit is usually peeled.
Place sliced peels with some flesh attached directly on meat, containing a meat-tenderizing enzyme; marinate for thirty minutes for each inch of meat thickness. Kiwifruit has ten times the vitamin C content of a lemon and twice the vitamin C content of an orange.
