    I just chop em in half and scoop out the flesh with a tea spoon. Seems kinda messy and i need some utensils to hand, so am i missing something?
     
  2. You are supposed to eat them with your mouth as is the custom in my country.

    Cut in half and squeeze. If your technique fails, you fail. Just practise! Only novice kiwi-eaters use a spoon.
     
  5. I used to peel them until about a year ago when I learned the spoon method.

    Likewise. I have a friend who eats them whole, skin and all. Always seemed a little gritty to me, but whatever.

  11. green or gold kiwifruit?

    If its green then i wouldnt eat the skin, but if its gold then you can eat it just like an apple.

    I still prefer using a spoon though.

    I put them in my mouth, kinda gnaw the end off and suck the green flesh out, then toss the empty skin.

    I typically just peel and then slice it.
     
  14. I like to peal it and shove it up my pee-hole. It saves my digestive system the trouble of turning my pee green.

    I peel and slice them. Occasionally if I'm feeling lazy I'll just cut it in half and eat the whole damn thing, skin and all (the skin actually doesn't taste bad if you don't mind the texture)

    The brown ones(gold?) are all I have ever had. Just cut them into slices, or eat them like an apple. No need to peel them IMHO.
