When was a kid, kiwis were typically about 30% smaller than what we see now. They also had a very unique, slightly tart taste. Now they are gigantic and taste like a hybrid of a banana and a strawberry. Sad.

Never thought of even trying it.....but I will now. 

Me neither and the idea seemed pretty gross.  But I happened to have a kiwi on the counter so, what the heck ...

Ah, too bad… no thumbs up here. You earned one though. :-)

Years and years ago a girl and I bonded over the fact that we both ate the skin on kiwis.

That wasn't the Miami Dolphins cheerleader. Aside from thinking she was hot, we had nothing in common.

If they can make grapes taste like cotton candy or gumdrops I'm sure they can get it to taste like it did you just have to find it and pay more.

I haven't eaten a kiwi in so long I don't even remember how I'd do it.

Which, in turn, is probably why I haven't eaten a kiwi in so long. It's a vicious cycle.

The trick to peeling off the skin quickly is w/a spoon, there are YT vids that demo it.

We occasionally have a kiwi mixed with other fresh fruit and the skin is always removed.  I never gave eating the skin a thought but I will try it just to see what it tastes like.

That is probably the biggest benefit of this - other than rinsing it, there's nothing to do.  It doesn't have a pit so you just eat the whole danged thing.  (I didn't eat the one end where the stem connected)

Or just eat the skin. ;-)

Right, I don't eat that part either.

Nothing more satisfying than looking down after lunch and seeing nothing but a table.

    • Oh pretty! Seems like in prime shape from a 1000 ft.
    • Yup. I lay my hat down next to it.
    • Seems fine. I feel like having played at RNK last year, a little rain isn’t going to bother me.
    • "Anyone who drives faster than you is a maniac! Anyone who drives slower than you is an idiot! - George Carlin" Thanks for the Saturday morning laugh, boogielicious. My old golf partner George Zakarian, may he rest in peace, once told a group of officers at the Fort Eustis golf course, "We may suck, but we suck fast."  Zak and I used to play 18 holes at Norwich Golf Course in Connecticut in two hours, with a cart.  (The 1980's.)
    • Day 5 (12 Jun 21) - Pitch shot work w/9i in the backyard.  Worked on takeaway / follow-thru mechanics, focused on coming straight back with in to out downswing.  Started out with most shots to the right of target and finishing the session with the ball crisp off the club on line or just left of the target.  Finished the drill using 5 different balls just to see how they acted: old “wound” Spalding TopFlite (very soft feeling); a couple of different model modern TopFlites (very clicky off the face); MaxFli (similar to the TopFlites) and a ProV1 (very similar to the wound ball in feel).  Doesn’t mean anything - just fun to hit.
