Are you supposed to peel kiwis?

    The fuzzy skin is edible, some people eat kiwis whole, though others don't like eating the skin. But it's probably easier to slice in half and eat it with a spoon, rather than trying to peel it.

    You don't have to but I prefer to peel Kiwis because I do not like how the outer skin taste.

    I do. I don't want to eat the fuzzy outer skin.

    If you wish. You can also just slice it down the middle and eat it out of the skin with a spoon.You can also eat the skin if you really wanted to do so. Just give it a rinse.

    Yes, the 'hairy' skin is unpleasant.

    If your not slicing them for a fruit salad for example, To eat individually, slice off the top, like a boiled egg, then eat like one, by scooping out the flesh with a spoon, my husband has them like this with his breakfast items.

    I work periodically at a produce processing plant and we peel (technically cut off the skin with a knife) as it goes into fruit salads and party platters. Some skins are thin and some are really thick and fuzzy so I couldn't imagine eating them. It's not like an apple skin.

    I used to peel them, but nowadays I just top & tail them, slice them in half & eat them with the skin on.

    I don't like eating the skin, I think it's disgusting. But some people don't mind it. Do what you want.

    I'm told in Australia they just eat the whole thing.  The skin isn't bad for you or anything, it's just hairy and chewy.  I never tried that.  I always peel them. But I have them only seldom.

    You can eat the skin/peel if you want - it's edible.

    I peel kiwis because I don't like the texture of the peel.
