Kiwi fruit

Question
Hello,

I was wondering if you can eat the skin on kiwi fruit and if so how many calories are in the skin?

I read online that eating the skin as well as the flesh is really good for you, but I've never seen anyone do it!

Thanks,

Clem

Answer
Hi Clementine,

Well, I've never seen anyone do it, either, and what's more, I've never even thought about it!
But you are correct: The skin is entirely edible and actually contains nutrients including fiber.
Because there is so much fiber in the skin, the caloric content is pretty negligible.

The numbers I have found are 42 calories in a kiwi fruit and 50 calories if you eat the entire fruit including the skin.

You learn something new every day :)
