No, but if I'm too tired or lazy or making a smoothie, the skin it is but I'll slice off a little off the top.

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.

    • Im quoting myself here (mods be kind) as i really was hoping someone may have thoughts to share. I likely didnt write enough in my last post and didnt think this warranted a new thread. Ive been on a very nice health and fitness routine for almost all of 2019. I lift full body 2x a week (because of work/life sched cant do splits), i stretch almost daily and do kettleball/band/etc golf training routines 2x a week (which i stole from my friend who got it from his TPI trainer). I was "skinny-fat" and in pretty bad shape (relatively) pre 2019. Now, my flexibility has definitely increased (easy to tell from stretches) and ive got big noob gains in lifting for 6 mos now (4 yr break from lifting). Ive lost about 20 lbs of fat and gained a ton of muscle (again noob gains). Note, im a skinny guy in general, always have been, but during my best years I resembled one of those athletic skinny tennis players. Everything about me feels fitter and stronger and more flexible. But my club distances are the same (at best) as pre 2019, and im more inconsistent than before. Without the intimate details of my swing, i dont expect to hear conclusive advice about my predicament, but would love if anyone had any similar stories. I love my swing coach and will continue to take lessons regularly. I find it really peculiar, as i mentioned previously, that my tennis game has completely turned around (ive always played near equal parts golf and tennis). Every part of my tennis game is materially better. Im faster, more consistent, better conditioned, and have a crap ton more power. What the heck is up w my golf swing. Pretty disappointed to be frank.  
    • Thanks guys. I am super curious how new balls compare to these and the relics in my bag. I've gotten to the point where my swing is repeatable again and I'm hitting balls in clusters at the range. I may go to the pro shop at the range and grab a few sleeves and experiment in a few weeks. I'm pushing the ball out past 300 yards again, so I'm assuming the range balls are quite beat down compared to my Maxfli, Top flights and anything else in my bag that's still shiny. If I'm not getting any real appreciable distance gain from a new ball, I won't buy anything. I have almost 10 dozen balls NIB from the late 90s through 2000s and now 22 dozen new balls. I doubt I'll ever need to buy a new ball again. I say that knowing how I spend money like a drunk sailor on leave hahaa
    • I have a few of those in my bags. Balls I was convinced were the ball and I protect them like a mother hen hahaha
    • Hello! Thanks for always answering my beginner queries lol! Yes, green dot was the static fitting done by myself with the chart. I guess in reality this may vary!   EDIT: Plus, a pro I visited the other day to change my grips told me I didn't need to bend the irons because of the lie angle, that the lie angle was ok. He also told me those were sort of crappy, but that's a different story lol
    • Hello there! Was your ‘green dot’ fitting just a static read? If so, it’s really just guesstimate as to what will fit you best. Ping i3-O can be bent to 2 color codes I believe. But for now I would focus more on developing good mechanics and then dive into a fitting. Cheers!
