on fruit eating

I have an ethical dilemma of how to eat a kiwi fruit. Well, it's not ethical at all, but never mind.

If one peels a kiwi fruit, with one's fingers, a little bit of skin at a time, it takes about five times as long to peel as it does to eat. Thus the effort is felt to have been wasted as the fruit is gone in two bites.

However, if one cuts the skin off with a knife, inevitably one loses a sizable fraction of the fruit. So you get less goodness but quicker.


  1. I acknowledge that I am a lady of questionable manners and etiquette, therefore my advice may not be the most 'proper' way but...I would cut the fruit in half and scoop out the insides with a spoon. Less mess, more fruit!
    (and yes, i just had to type etiquette into a word document report I am writing to check the spelling!)

  2. I agree with above....... Spooning! lol! xxx

  3. p.s get following! lol! xxx
