Kiwis are higher in potassium than a banana, so yes they do have a lot of nutrional value. The funny thing about them is that they get sweeter the longer you have the unpeeled fruit sitting out. The natural sugar just comes right out. I like to peel it and eat it just like that or sometimes I will slice it to make fruit platters look decrative.

1. Size - I've seen some the size of an egg and a little larger...about lemon size. I've never seen any as big as an apple though.

2. "How to tell if they are ripe?" - The ripe ones are golden brown, while the unripe ones have a little green tone under the brown. They are also soft to the touch, but are over-ripe if they are mushy to the touch.
