How to Cut Kiwi Fruit

Kiwi fruit is a popular addition to smoothies, salads, desserts, and more. Its fuzzy skin and bright green or gold flesh provide a huge source of vitamin C, antioxidants, and fiber.

You can easily cut kiwis into slices, wedges, or cubes, so they’ll be ready to eat and look beautiful on a platter. Learn how to do so in this cooking resource!


Kiwi fruit is a delicious and healthy snack that’s easy to prepare. It’s a fuzzy fruit that can build up dirt quickly, so it’s important to give it a good wash before peeling or cutting.

To peel a kiwi, you can use a paring knife or a vegetable peeler. You can also use a spoon, but it requires more concentration and may not be as precise.

You can cut the fruit into rounds, wedges, or cubes. To create round slices, lay the kiwi on its side and slice across the short end. Make the width as thin or thick as you prefer.

To cut kiwi into cubes, stand the fruit upright again. Using a paring knife, make 3-4 vertical cuts, rotate the kiwi, then make another 3-4 cuts so you have columns. You can serve these as a garnish to yogurt parfaits, oatmeal bowls, overnight oats, or as a fruit salsa. You can also add the cubes to smoothies or mix them into a kiwi fruit salad.


Kiwi fruit is a delicious and refreshing ingredient in recipes. Their sweet and mild flavor makes them an ideal addition to smoothies, fruit salads, and salsas.

However, kiwi is also a bit tricky to cut because of their fuzzy skin. It’s important to prepare your kiwi before you begin cutting it for any meal or snack.

Wash your kiwi fruit thoroughly to prevent any possible contamination. Then, test it for ripeness by gently pressing the skin between your thumb and pointer finger.

If it gives in to the lightest pressure, then it is ripe.

Once a kiwi is ready to be cut, it can be used to make delicious slices, dices, and cubes. These cuts are especially perfect for adding a tropical flair to desserts such as cakes, pavlovas, and fruit tarts.


Kiwi fruit is delicious on its own, but it also makes a beautiful garnish for baked desserts. It is an ideal addition to a fruit salad, or it can be used as a topping for yogurt or a fancy tart.

To add kiwi fruit to a dessert, cut it into rounds, half-circles, quarters or small dice. You can even try slicing it in a zigzag to create a star-cut decoration.

When cutting a kiwi, you want to make sure that you use a sharp knife. This will keep the fruit from being too mushy.

Once you’ve cut the kiwi, you can start peeling it. Using either a spoon, a peeler or a knife, peel the kiwi’s skin away from the flesh.

When you’re ready to serve your kiwi, place it on a serving platter or fruit bowl. Then add other garnishes and enjoy! You’ll love the sweet-tart flavor of kiwi fruit!


Kiwi fruit is not only tasty, but also packed with plenty of vitamins and minerals. Fortunately, it can last for weeks or even months in the fridge and freezer, so you don’t have to worry about running out of fresh fruit!

However, you should know how to store kiwi fruit properly for best results. If you want to enjoy the fruits as long as possible, it’s best to store them at room temperature or in your refrigerator.

Once you buy your kiwi fruit, check it thoroughly to make sure that it is not moldy. If you see patches of mold, then it is already spoiled and should not be eaten.

Another warning sign is if the skin of your kiwi fruit is dry and shriveled or if the inside appears dull and has very little juice in it. Depending on the length of time it has been in storage, the fruit may have also completely dried out.
