ruits are an important part of our daily diet. Whether we get enough fruit is however, a different question altogether. Some fruits though are a bit of a bother to peel. Tropical fruits like pineapples for example, are thorny and messy to peel. If you live in Asia, you would be familiar with the "King of Fruit" - the Durian, which is even more difficult to crack open although the flesh is a wonderful delight for those (Westerners) who aren't repulsed by its pungent aroma. Some people don't eat fruit simple because they don't want to peel, core or pit it! As people find all sorts of reasons NOT to eat fruit, enterprising folk are finding more ways to market fruit! It's come to such a point where people even buy fruit not for the obvious health benefits but because of the packaging!

This is a really profitable money maker. What you want to do is buy your fruit from a wholesaler cheap. Then you peel and slice your fruit and package them. You might want to include small packets of dip or whatever sauce that's popular in your country to go along with your peeled fruit.
