    29. mythirdchannel

      I'll admit you got me with some fruit I don't know - BUT I don't see any apricots or loquat, so I got you back! :P and there are better ways to cut a pomegranate, you can take the top off and score around the peel where the membranes are and then you can separate it to segments which you can eat off the pith or separate the seeds manually or like Frank did with a spoon. also - that pepino melon, is a cross between a melon and a cucumber, I can't imagine anything fresher XD and errr, I really did not enjoy the "audience audio", the narration of the name of the fruit was fine, but the laughs and giggles and stuff was cringy imo ... the hammer bit was not a favorite either XD

    30. Shanan Khalid

      Nobody: Not even a single soul: Not even a person without socks: <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="506">8:26</a> : this is an Apple🤣

    37. Cady Playz

    45. Sarah Pedro

      Big no for mango and pineapple. So easy to do mango. You MUST wash them. Gut the seed. Slice in sticks. Glide knife along the kin to remove. Youre definitely gonna cut ur hand if you peel t first ugh.

    46. IanDooky

      Is no on e going to talk about the vibrations when you skip threw the video Am I the only one ...

    47. Cosmic Trash

      The "use the hammer" thing was annoying and unnecesary tho

    48. Lumina Skies

      There is quite a bit of fruit missing from this video but it is very informative. Was hoping to see a blood orange in that list.

    66. Rolixio Diante

    67. nishith

      Try jackfruit. I think that will be the hardest.

    68. Naud Nijkamp

    69. Alex Lewis

      Why am I watching this 🤣


      Sorry.. But who cuts a lemon like that?? I mean its cruel. I cut lemons like lime..

    71. Vmin’s Daughter

      I didn’t know bananas have second names

    72. VinSoGood 22

      Why am I watching a 40 year old slicing fruit? And why does it have over 21 million views?! I guess this is what quarantine does on the internet.

    73. Rayz May

      Him: takes ten seconds to peel an apple Me: takes ten minutes to peel an apple🤣

    74. Meiji Española

      I love how sharp the knife is

    75. PawDragon

      Wait... you need to peel the apple?

    76. samruddhi Kulkarni

      Well that's a lot of fibre content lost by body. Cut fruits are only of decorative use. Fruits with thin skin like apple....really need to be washed properly and eaten directly. Fruits are meant to be eaten to regular ones bowel movement which usually is neglected by slicing it . The more you slice more is the nutrient lost. Sliced fruits are mostly used by chefs for decorating and adding color prospect but fruits should always be eaten with your hands

    77. fatty mc fat popo

      cantaloupe looks like a rock melon

    78. dayana

      I can’t believe I just watched 23 minutes of cutting fruit... what is quarantine doing to me
