    I don’t. The fuzz is = nails on chalkboard to my senses.

    I perfer nectarines. I just eat them like an apple …but keep a tissue on-hand for mess protection.

    Pomegranates: cur in half and peel under water.

    Kiwi: peel & eat

    I like to give peaches a quick boil, peel off the skin, and eat them over the sink.  LOL

    I cut kiwis in half and eat with a small spoon- hollowing them out.

    Poms I fill a bowl with waters and start peeling it apart under water– the pulpy stuff floats and the fruit/seeds sink to the bottom- nice trick a la Alton Brown.

    When eating a peach, I bite into like an apple, eating straight to the pit!  I do that with home grown tomatoes too 🙂 

    I do not eat pomegranate, because their pits stain EVERYTHING, and I inevitably lose a piece of fruit everytime.

    Kiwi, I cut in half and eat with a spoon, discarding the skins when I am done.

    Usually I eat it like an apple, and sometimes I slice it and eat it peel on. I’m a little embarrassed to admit it, but I have one of these for early-season peaches (when they don’t come easily off the pit) and it makes baking so much easier.

    Kiwi- either cut it in half and eat with a grapefruit spoon, or peel and slice.

    Pomegranate- gently break open, then shell the arils underwater in a big bowl. The pith floats and the arils sink, so it’s easy to separate them and you don’t make a big red mess.

    Peaches – I make my husband cut them up and bring them to me 😛 He leaves the skin on. The fuzz doesn’t bother me. I don’t bite into any fruit except bananas

    Kiwi – my husband hates kiwis, so I’m on my own with this one. I peel them and then just eat the green part!

    Pomegranates – E-yuck!

    If I’m in a “fresh” peach mood, I’ll bite into it.

    But if I want something different, I halve and pit it, slap on some butter, GRILL it, and sprinkle with a touch of brown sugar.

    Kiwi: peel and slice

    I pretty much always eat them over the sink. Since I always manage to get the juice all the way down to my elbows.

    i either slice it, peel on, or eat it like an apple, peel on.

    it depends on my mood, and if i’m home where i have a knife with which i can cut the peach.

    I cut up peaches and kiwis. I usually peel the skin off of a peach, but I don’t mind eating it either. Biting into a peach is just so messy!

    I love pomegranates! But I am clueless with “peeling”? them myself or whatever you call that process. I usually buy them already done and then eat them with a spoon.

    @NotablySidedJP:  YES! I eat them over the sink too for the same reason.
