Have been given some Kiwi Fruit but they are hard and very sour , wondering how I could ripen them for eating not cooking.cheers

We used to put them in the hot water cupboard with an apple to ripen.
Don't really eat them anymore, and can't remember how much success there was with the method lol

Put them in a Paper Bag with a banana.

nanjay, the following information is from:-

http://www.zespri.com/zespri-kiwifruit/top-taste/storing-kiwifruit.html

"It normally takes between 3 - 5 days for a firm ZESPRI® Kiwifruit to ripen although this process can be hastened if placed in a paper bag with an apple or banana. A ripe kiwifruit will yield gently to your fingers when you press it, and can be eaten immediately or stored in the refrigerator for a further 2 - 3 weeks."

Hope that helps.:-))

brown paper bag usually works well. Having them in a bag with another piece of fruit also helps.
