SOS----how far ahead of time can I cut up kiwi without fear that the cut pieces will discolor?

Brunch is 5 hours away, but I am juggling cinnamon rolls and muffins and other errands before we leave. How far ahead of time can I cut kiwi with out fear that it will discolor? ( I am not worried about the pineapple and blood oranges discoloring.)

Thanks in advance.

    They do not discolor. I did it just last weekend. Cut up in the morning, left in the fridge and served it at night.

      they do not oxidize, but the blood orange will bleed color, so combine the salad at the last minute.
