Know the Kiwi Fruit

Kiwi Fruits are basically the "Sweetarts" of the fruit and vegetable world! They can be simply sweet, sour, or a hint of both.

When eaten ripe, these fruits are delightfully delectable snacks!

Things you need to know:

  • Don't eat unripe Kiwi
  • Don't eat rotten or spoiled Kiwi
  • You can eat the skin of a Kiwi without peeling it, but the skin and outer layer can potentially make your mouth itch. *You try it at your own risk.*
  • Kiwi that is too green (AKA not ripe enough) can be hard, and it does not taste as good. Fresh, and ripe Kiwi is best for uncooked-consumption.

What you'll need:

Step 1: Wash your Kiwi

It's best to wash the fruit off first, this prevents dirt from getting onto your fruit while you're peeling it, and helps gets any loose fuzz off.

Use the knife to cut off a small portion of both ends of the Kiwi.

Step 3: Insert the spoon

Insert the spoon into one of the ends so that it is between the skin and the flesh of the fruit.

      I tend to be lazy if I'm eating a kiwi fruit. I generally cut it in half and scoop each side out to eat it. If I'm using kiwi fruit in a fruit salad, I peel it all around and then slice it. I might try your suggestion of cutting the ends off first.
