    Peeling a Kiwi is easier than you think.
    You don't exactly have to "skin" it.

    And a ripe kiwi is *much* easier to peel than an underripe one, so make sure it's the latter (admittedly, this can be a challenge with a fruit that's green in both stages.)

    Well, in that case, go for the softer one. You definitetly don't want to be eating a hard Kiwi.

    Most likely, apply for a government grant to track and study it's habits with a cute undergrad. I hear it's courtship display is quite amazing. (voyeurism au natural?)

    Kiwi Fact Of The Day After:

    In proportion to her size, the female kiwi lays the largest egg of any bird- up to one fourth of her own body weight!

    Fun fact: Italy produces the most kiwifruit.

    And oh, there's a tool particularly made to spoon the fruit out, btw. It would amaze me if anyone on TZ actually had one of those, though.

    Yet Another Fun Fact:

    The kiwi fruit was originally called the 'Chinese gooseberry', after it's country of origin. Produce marketers changed the name during the Cold War 50s, for fear that any reference to 'China' would be unappealing to American consumers. (No word on whether the dishware industry ever had similar concerns.)
