:happy: So random

OK, there are many ways and it just depends on how much do you like to complicate:p

I noticed that some people think I'm some sort of a weirdo cause I eat it all, like an apple, including the hairy skin, rather than using other, time consuming methods.

How about you?:lol:

I slice it in 4 halfs and then eat it like watermelon.
I thought everyone eats it like that, :eek: first time I hear that someone eats hairy skin! :speakles:

:bounce: Another one who's eating it like an apple! As the skin is very thin it's no problem at all.

one of my favorite fruits! :drool:

i never eat it with the skin. either peel it off or cut the kiwi in half and scoop the fruit with a spoon.

I've only ever seen someone eat the skin of a kiwi once and that was a chick from New Zealand. I figured that she would know the correct procedure to eating one, but I could never eat the skin :scared: Gives me the heebie jeebies just thinking about it. Ugh! :tape:

Eating it together with the skin is sometimes easier if you don't have a knife or spoon with you :p

The skin tastes great. If you wash it off first, it's completely healthy and very nutritious. Try it! (Don't eat the two end pieces though, of course.)

You don't have to eat it like an apple to eat the skin. Just wash it well under some water, then slice it into circular pieces. The skin has a great tart flavor. It's actually very good. I never at the skin until I went to Germany, where a lot of people ate the skin. It's very nutritious and it's not hair, anyway. It's all mental anyway, considering most of you creeped out by the skin would probably eat a hotdog without a second thought, despite its less-than-savory contents.

Ew eating that hairy stuff is like licking a hobos face!! Scoop with spoon or pick the sliced pieces out of the dessert.

As a kid I used to peel the skin off but then I saw my cousin eating it all. I tried and never went back to peeling, the taste was great(the skin neutralizes kiwi's acidity) and you don't feel the hair anyway. It's also quick and you don't need those unneccessary knives or in case of you guys a spoon:p

Wow, eating the orange rind ... I wonder why your friend does that. They don't taste good. Kiwi skin, on the other hand, is divine! :hearts:

That's so weird so many people eat the skin, i'll have to try it.

I cut it in half and spoon it out, or if it's going in a fruit salad or something i'll peel it then cut it up.

Btw, you should have said kiwi-fruit in the title, i never just call it a "kiwi". sounds weird :P

I'd peel it and then slice it.

Not that I've had a kiwi fruit for years.

Never heard or known someone from Germany who eats kiwi skin :tape:
The most common way to eat a kiwi in Germany, I would say, is to slice it into two halves and eat with a spoon :shrug:
