Kiwis

Ireland does not grow its own Kiwis as they are cultivated in warm temperate and subtropical regions of the world. However, Keelings source them from New Zealand, Italy, Spain and Chile. Kiwis are also produced in the United States, Japan, France, Greece and Australia. Kiwis may be eaten raw or cooked.

Keelings Tip

Kiwis are best eaten at room temperature so remove from the fridge one hour before eating. For easy eating, cut in half and use teaspoon to separate fruit from skin.
