If you’ve considered eating your homework because you can’t convince your dog to do it, then this is the fruit for you!

APPEARANCE Rating: ★★★½☆

Rough, brown, slightly fuzzy skin the size of a child’s fist with a little nub or ridge on the end, pale green to yellow flesh with a ring of tiny black seeds.

AROMA Rating: ★★★½☆

Sweet cucumber and melon.

TEXTURE Rating: ★★★★½

Soft and luscious, almost creamy, juicy and smooth; seeds are basically unnoticeable; skin is like eating a thin, paper grocery bag (Not that I have ever tried eating a grocery bag, its just what I imagine it would be like. I have eaten rice paper of course and I might have tried the craft items in elementary school once or twice, but I digress…)

TASTE Rating: ★★★★☆

Reminds me of eating a banana mixed with a cucumber; it is slightly acidic as the flavor fades.

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★★★☆

I like this kiwi more than the tart and often acidic green varieties I have tried. It has a completely delightful texture if you ditch the skin, which you definitely should. There is absolutely no reason to eat a fuzzy paper bag unless you have pica and then I guess this is a really excellent alternative so keep that in mind.  Anyway, this is like eating fruity pudding. I kind of want to whip it into some sort of milkshake or slurpee or something.  Yummy.

NOTES

Kiwi is also called the Chinese Gooseberry. It has double the amount of Vitamin C found in an equal portion of an orange. Also you will seem a lot more exotic and interesting eating a kiwi than an ordinary orange.
