He's eating it like you would an apple, skin and all.

He says it's delicious, he's had two in a row now.

I have always peeled kiwis and discarded the skin, surely what he is doing is an abomination?

Aibu?

I eat the skin. The fuzz is gooood

Dp thinks I'm skanky

I'm a skin-eater too! Delish.

However, my DM taught me to scoop out the kiwi halves boiled egg style.

I just googled as I didn't know if the skin was edible ..I got this

"The kiwifruit skin is completely edible and makes this nutrient-dense fruit even more nutritious! A recent study shows that eating the skin triples the fiber intake compared to merely eating the flesh. And by not peeling the skin, you preserve much of the vitamin C content as well"

Clearly he is eating it in a more nutritious manner

Get rid of him reality.

Only way.

You can't live with someone who does that.

Personally, kiwis are wrong in any form.
One child has them cut in half, and uses a spoon, one has them in quartets, but still leaves the skin.
DH eats the skin.

Kiwis make my mouth swell. Horrible things.

Eating the skin? Urrhrhhghg.

I love eating the skin, but it makes your tongue all tingly afterwards which I don't like.

PotOfYoghurt Mon 10-Aug-15 13:43:28

Nobody should eat kiwis.

Kiwifruit on the other hand...

DrElizabethPlimpton Mon 10-Aug-15 13:43:53

Kiwis are the devils testicles. Nasty horrible things.

Love kiwi but not the skin, yuk!

I peel mine then slice it , all dainty like. wink

vestandknickers Mon 10-Aug-15 13:46:10

I even peel them for the hamster.

Dismalfuckers Mon 10-Aug-15 13:47:54

This makes me feel better about ds just biting into a satsuma- not breaking it into segments.

He did peel it though grin

I eat the skin too, it's the tastiest bit......life is too short to peal a kiwi smile

Tuskerfull Mon 10-Aug-15 13:51:29

I eat the skin too. It's much nicer that way.

ChilliAndMint Mon 10-Aug-15 13:52:31

Lychees are rather testicular as well.

HedgehogAtHome Mon 10-Aug-15 13:52:41

I peel them, but I feel daft about it. I could use the extra fibre in my diet and I hate food waste. It's just too darn hairy.

Anyone who eats a kiwi in any way is BU - food of the devil confused

Mrscog Mon 10-Aug-15 14:29:24

I once tried the skin as my boss ate them like that. Wayyy too much like eating a tarantula for my liking. Kiwis are best scooped with a spoon like a yoghurt.

CMOTDibbler Mon 10-Aug-15 14:31:16

I can't bear the skin in my mouth, but ds likes it

FernGullysWoollyPully Mon 10-Aug-15 14:37:11

Kiwis <boak> taste like shit and make my lips swell up.

The kidslove them and eat them with a spoon.

HeadDreamer Mon 10-Aug-15 14:38:20

What potofyoghurt says. Nobody should eat kiwis. That's the bird or the people. The fruit is kiwi fruit.

A kiwi in the UK.

Theoldshmoo Mon 10-Aug-15 14:40:17

They say you learn a new thing everyday!

At 42, i had no idea you could eat the skin blush

AngieBolen Mon 10-Aug-15 14:40:54

I've never really liked kiwis.

Then I discovered they are related to gooseberries and that explained everything.

BlueKarou Mon 10-Aug-15 14:42:07

Kiwi fruit makes my mouth burn, skin or no skin... sad
