In that case, simply cut the tiny brown fruit in half to expose the inner flesh. Scoop out the green fruit with a spoon and enjoy. Kiwi is a tasty topper for everything from pancakes to ice cream. Besides being delicious and convenient, kiwi is also healthy. It is loaded with nutritious vitamins as well as antioxidants and phytochemicals.
