1

Take the kiwifruit and trim off the ends. By the way, to select a ripe kiwifruit, using your palm and the pad of your thumb apply light pressure to a kiwi. Do not use your fingertips! Feel for soft squishy spots. The skin should also be taut and not wrinkled.

Using a spoon, slide it between the skin and the flesh. See the video for how to do this.

3

Rolling the kiwifruit in your hand, turn the spoon around the flesh while keeping the spoon pressed firmly against the inside of the skin.

4

Once you have gone around the whole fruit, it will just slide outside of the skin. It is ready for slicing or whatever you have planned.
