Kiwi: To Peel or Not To Peel?

I have been eating kiwis as long as I can remember and have always peeled them. That's how my mom gave them to me when I was little and how I continued to do it ever since. The other day I was cutting up a lot of fruit to macerate in balsamic vinegar and top with creme fraiche and when I started to peel the fuzz off the kiwi, my husband looked at me like I was insane. I realized that I had never eaten the fuzz so I tried a bit and was not a fan so I will be peeling them for the rest of my life.

What do all of you do with kiwi? Any other fruits that other people think yo treat oddly?
