Which type of kiwi fruit do you prefer, green or gold? I prefer the gold because I like the taste better and also because they have a lot less fuzz(hair) than the green ones do. Unfortunately, the gold kiwi are almost never available where I live. Which type do you like and are the gold ones available where you live?

I didn't even know there were gold ones. So I guess I should say I never had a gold one. I like Kiwi's but I don't like the aftertaste or the wierd feeling in my mouth after I eat one. I like them when I am eating them, but not after. I have not had any in quite a while. But I would really be interested in trying a gold one. Sounds like I might like that better.

If you like them while eating them but not the after taste, try rinsing your mouth with water after eating them and see if that helps.

I've tasted nor even seen a gold kiwi, so I'd go for green. I love green kiwi.

I only saw the gold for the first time a couple years ago. They are great! I would prefer to get those but the green are good to if you get them at the right time. I can't handle it when they are really tart but I like their normal sweet/tart flavor when fully ripe.

I guess i have only seen the green kiwi. I didn't even know there was such a thing as gold kiwi. I guess that also means that it is not available in my area!

Gold Kiwi - I like this gold kiwi.
Kiwi is one of my favourite fruit and especially the gold one. Whenever I saw it in the fruit stall, I will sure get back a few. For the green one, it is ok with me too, but some brings slightly sour taste. I'm more prefer the gold one, it is always taste better and sweeter. Although it comes a bit expansive then the green one, I will still buy it, cause it is not always available unlike the green one. I was wondering why my son doesn't like kiwi, it taste better than orange, but he always prefer the latter one. Kiwi having the highest Vitamin C among all other fruits. Sometimes I make my salad with gold kiwi in it too. It taste great! Normally when I eat it, I don't remove the skin of the kiwi, I will cut the fruit into half and scoop up the flesh with spoon. In my place, the Kiwi fruits are normally imported from New Zealand. Those kiwi which sell in a box are normally comes with a spoon which can be use as cutter too. I find it very convenient.

Green and gold, and their nutritional value are the same. Only the color difference Kiwi fruit mature feel hard, like to eat taste Piansuan person may peel direct consumption. Hard fruits on the natural environment, temperature of 10-20 degrees Celsius about 15 days, if mixed with other fruit and put about 5 days, the fruit is beginning to show well-done state, can be fruit from the middle of everything for two, and then dig teaspoon edible flesh. A class of taste-quality fresh fruit is oranges, bananas, strawberries, and three of, in addition to point of watermelon flavor is really wonderful matter to actually "King of Fruits."

HI Stealthy, I like both types of kiwi ,green and gold. Gold kiwi is more expensive than the green one at my place here. It is not easy to get a nice kiwi here and I can tell you,kiwi is one of the expensive fruit at my place. Sometimes, I will serve kiwi into jellies, It taste great. Kiwi can also be served in salad and this is one of my favourite food. Kiwi fruit is rich in vitamin A,C and E.It is known that kiwifruits is useful in improving conditions in asthmatic children and in decreasing the probability in colon cancer. Enjoy the benefit of this delicious fruit,always serve kiwi fruits for your family !!

I've never had a gold kiwi. Now if you were to ask me which I prefer, white or green asparagus, I'd say white. But I digress...
