Do you consume fruits with the skin or peel them off

Well, to my knowledge the major vitamins and nutrients are concentrated more on the skin of the fruits and vegetables, so I clean(wash) the fruits well and consume them as such with the skin. Of course, I take care not to eat banana skins and jack-fruit skins and other peels he he

It depends on the fruit. I peel bananas and oranges, but most everything else I eat with skin. Peaches, apples and even kiwi fruit. I like the peel and its supposed to have a lot more nutrients than the meat. I don't know if its true or not. I have a friend who won't eat peaches because of the peeling and kiwi she won't touch either! Oh.. I don't eat the watermelon or cantelope peels either!

I peel all the fruits that are not grown in such a place that I know for sure there´s no chemicals in them. I have friends who live in the country and have a couple of fruit trees away from their crop (avocados) that have to be fumigated). Those I eat. And, of course, the apricots from my apricot tree and one (1) cherry from my daughter´s baby cherry tree (it´s in the stage where you count the fruit)

Yes as you say most of the fruits should be eaten with their skin, until and unless it is absolutely necessary to remove the skin, I have seen many people peeling off the skin before eating a fruit, this is not the appropriate method as the nutrients are lost.
