Peaches are cut exactly like avocadoes, but here we have to make two ninety degree cuts around the fruit and then give a twist to loosen the fruit from its seed.

10) Kiwi

Peeling the kiwis with a spoon is probably the most appropriate way to cut them. Have a look.

Cutting pears can be very easy if you can follow the given technique that carefully incises the halved fruit lengthwise to remove the core.
