CLECTIC-WANDRER, Your instinct isn't too far off...You don't want them TOO soft, because like bananas, they do tend to ferment after a point.

I like them sour too.

Oh, okay. I had it backwards. I thought firmer was better and softer meant it was going towards not good.
I appreciate the input ^_^ I'll give it another shot when I go to the store next

Others may have a better method, but I choose kiwi the way I choose bananas. The firmer they are, the more sour they're likely to be. Store at room temp.

I buy organic kiwi (usually from an organic delivery service like Spud). They tend to be sweeter, because they're not picked too early.

Also, I've found the organic ones ripen a bit sitting out on the counter, which the non-organic ones don't always.

I love kiwi in fruit salads, but when I buy fresh kiwi at the produce department, it is WAY too sour, and the core at the middle is a little bit harder than when I get it in a salad.

Can someone please give me some hints on picking better kiwi?

Thank you in advance!
