My DS reacted to kiwi in a fruit salad when he was almost 2 (all other fruits were ones he'd eaten before and since then with no problems). The reaction was hives on the face and down his neck. We have avoided it, and kept it out of our house since. At the next allergist's appointment, he was skin tested with a fresh kiwi that I was asked to bring in. The wheal was the same size as his egg wheal. We did nuts/peanuts via RAST, so we couldn't compare to those, but the doctor thought the allergy was moderate in severity.
