How to Peel a Kiwifruit - the Easiest Way




Introduction: How to Peel a Kiwifruit - the Easiest Way

I mean, it's obvious, isn't it? Or is it?

You may already think peeling a kiwifruit is easy - but unless you've been doing it like this, you've been doing it the hard way.

    Great little lesson there. I usually eat the skins, 'cuz I believe there's a lot of vitamins to be had there. However, I have alot of kiwi fruit that I need to dispatch quickly or lose (a friend brought a case back from California for me). Does anyone know if I could freeze this fruit? Thanks!

    I don't think they'll freeze very well, unless you use them to make something you intend to eat in the still-frozen state, such as ice lollies, granita, sorbet or some such.

    Hi there and thanks for the reply. I have a new dilemma - several bags of black and red grapes. Thinking I'll make a new concoction of grape juice and kiwi fruit juice to freeze and make a sort of sorbet. As these fruits are sweet and tangy respectivelly I could call it Sweet 'n Sour. ha!

    I'm a keen proponent of the "slice off the top and scoop it out like a boiled egg" method of eating chinese gooseberries. It's more fun that way! :-)

    i do it the same way except i cut it in half in stead of at the ends. ill go try quit nicely but my way works better for me

    wow..normally I just cut it in half and scoop it out with a spoon...or peel the whole thing with an apple peeler...and then eat it whole.

    Usually I don't eat them. Just when they're in smoothies or something. By the way Mangetout, awesome video on showing how, never knew I could have done this... I used to just smash them. But that didn't let me eat them... it was fun. Very fun.

    Thanks. Egg-and-spoon style works pretty well when you're just eating it as a snack. this method is really intended for those times you want to make nice intact slices of kiwi for topping a pavlova or something. I never managed to peel them with a vegetable peeler - unless they're horribly under ripe, the skin just jams in the little slot.

    That is interesting. We do something similar with avocado. I liked the subtitles. It was hard to understand your thick Irish brogue ;-)

    Thanks. Interesting - on another site, my accent got misidentified as a New Zealand one (I guess the kiwi connection made that happen). I'm actually from the South of England.

    My wife sat down with a kiwi snack just as I opened up this page. Coincidence? I think not! Clearly this was divine intervention! ha. The solution is great! Thanks.
