Yes, I love eating these fruits like this too. The only time that I will peel the skin off would be when it looks rotten or badly bruised.

i leave the skin on most of the time,after i've thoroughly cleaned it. i still worry sometimes about leftover whatever on it though.

Yes, me too. I do take my time washing it. Have you tried FIT before? This substance cleans fruit and vegetables.. I plan to try it out to see how well it works.. I guess it is like an food pesticide that eliminates germs and such..

i'd heard of it but never tried it-i think it just cleans the surface. wax and all that.

Yes, me too.. I think that as well. I hope it aids in killing extra germs that were left on the food. It would be worth buying then..

i prefer peeling off the fruits because my throat & mouth has this weird feeling of chewing & swallowing with the fruit. i think it has been a psychological effect on me which up until now even though they advise me that the skin of the fruit has nutrients i have never dared to it unpeeled.

Oh, I am very sorry that you are unable to enjoy the fruit with the skin on. Have you tried cutting the fruit up into small bite sized pieces? That way, you can still eat the fruit, but just only in smaller quantities.

Hi cream97, I like eating fruits which are peeled off only. I dislike the mouth-feel of the skin and it would make the fruit lesser delicious. I dislike taking grapes for I have to spend lots of extra time to peel off its skin, unless my hubby won’t mind taking the trouble to do it for me. Besides banana, it’s easy and convenient to take papaya and watermelon as well, for I usually scoop out the juicy flesh from the cut fruits using a spoon. posting and take care.

Oh, I see that you like to scoop out the insides of the fruit. You sure do have much patience, because I know that I don't. I just leave the skin on mines.. If it is rotten or bruised, I will peel it off.

It’s an easy way to eat papaya and watermelon. I cut the papaya or watermelon into four or more equal parts depending on the size of the fruit. For a normal size papaya I usually cut it into four pieces with skin. I place the piece of fruit in a plate, then using a spoon to scoop out the flesh and put it directly into my mouth, so I don’t have to take the trouble to peel the skin off. Three of us in my family share the whole papaya.

I eat them either way as long as I can because it is easier than taking the peel off. A lot quicker.

All the fruits that you just mentioned I eat them with the fruit on, and grapes too. There are fruits that I won't eat with the skin on like bananas or mangoes. I don't think I've ever actually seen any one eating the skin of a banana or a mango.

I like to eat fruit with the skin on because of the vitamins just beneath it unless the skin is usually kind of bitter, like plums. I always peel plums. I always get the hiccups when I eat an apple so I tried peeling one to see if that would help. Nope! I still got the hiccups! So, I keep the skin on now unless I'm chopping up apples to put in a salad or something. Apricots I only eat dried so I really have no say in the matter. Peaches and pears I always eat the skin with the fruit, unless they're canned, of course! LOL

I like eating fruits with skin peeled off. It is much easier to eat and to chew. I don’t like eating apples without its skin peeled off. I find it hard to chew the skin of it, though they say that the skins of the apples are where the nutrients are.

For all of those, the skin on. Lots of vitamins and fiber in the skin too!

Yes, these fruit, I always leave the skin on them. The only time that I will take it off, is when the fruit appears to be badly bruised and rotten.. Other than that, it is happy- fruit- with- skin- on- it eating for me!

The only fruit I like with the peel on it is apples. The skin on peaches is really fuzzy I don't like that I don't eat plums either way with or without the peel yucky. I don't really care for apricots all that well eitehr. I don't eat the peel of a banana either! lol.

Most of the time, I remove the peel. If it's dates, apricots, the peel remains. For bananas, durian, the peel has to go. Cheers!!

It is really good that you are lazy, because leaving the skin on is so much more healthier than peeling it off.

I eat the skin because that's where all the vitamins are! I never peel my vegetables, only squash, because it's like throwing away everything good in the fruit or vegetable and leaving only the empty calories.
