I called the Kiwi Fruit ~ Fairy Fruit because it looks like fruit you would find and eat in Fairy Land.
I would get the hardest firmest Kiwi fruit I could find so that it would be easier to cut and not so messy.
I would thinly peel it like an apple with a praerie knife. After cutting the ends off I would peel it downward to just short of the end and turn back without lifting the knife and go in the opposite direction > continuing to turn the kiwi fruit and reverse directions trying to see how long I could make the peel. A peel in time.
After peeling it I would slice it in half lengthwise. Then I make several parallel thin slices lengthewise on each half. I then cut crossways and again before adding it to Time Lord Cake. Lick the seeds off your fingers, and enjoy. Now what can I use the peel for ?

Slice it the long way into four pieces and then peal the backs off that way.

How about blanching it for a couple of minutes and then peeling it as one would a peach or tomato?
A ripe star fruie is nice and yellow with no brown tips.
How-in-the-devil do you peel a star fruit?

You don't ... just slice and eat, skin and all.
