Does anybody know any good substitute for kiwifruit in recipes?

I'm allergic to it and i get so disappointed when there is a recipe I want to try out that has it as a main ingredient, but I don't want to loose the fruit characteristic.

Any ideas?

This might interest both of you Teresa & Pete. A Belgian scientist has discovered how different food matches. You can read all about it on the website www.foodpairing.be but there's a fantastic search funtion included, well actually 2 functions. On one part you can search which food can replace another. And -most exciting part- what goes with a certain fooditem. You will notice the oddest combinations. I know a lot of high-end chefs check their sometimes very weird combinations on this website. A wellknown chocolatier has already made chocolates with oyster and another with .. grass!

Mind you, not all food has been researched yet, but kiwi already is; check the charts on these pages!!

What can replace? Search on Kiwi


(apple, avocado, guave, mango, oyster and 6 more)

What fits well with? Search on Kiwi puree
