Life changing fruit cutting hacks!

If you've ever wanted to impress your friends with your knife skills, or just wanted to prepare your fruit without feeling like you're going to battle then this is for you!

It's a mystery why some of the best tasting fruits are using the hardest to get into. Maybe that's nature's way of saying 'The fruit derived from labour is the sweetest to pleasures'.

Well, now there's a way to enjoy the best fruit without all the hassle! So let's dive right in :)

Mango

The traditional method of cutting a mango -- which involves slicing around the pit and turning it inside-out is a sticky mess which forces you to eat over the sink. But the glass method, shown here by Lifehacker, changes all of that.

Orange

Lifehacks4you makes opening an orange a peace of cake. Just cut the top and bottom and slice down the middle.

Pineapple

This one from Dave Hax's hacks is absolutely brilliant! Cut the pineapple into quarters, slice along the fruit, and then slice again across the quarters. Fan it out and it's ready to serve.

Kiwi

Grant Thompson demonstrates an overlooked cutting utensil when it comes to preparing kiwis.

Apple

Four simple cuts is all it takes in Thompson's apple hack -- score extra points if you use a rubber band to keep it all together for quick and easy packing!

Watermelon

YourProduceGuy shows that it just takes a few slices of the knife to cube and serve an entire watermelon.

Cherry Tomato

Use Hax's cherry tomato trick -- place the tomatoes between two plates and then slice through them all with one cut -- it will have your tomatoes ready for the salad in seconds.

Avocado

The American Chemical Society demonstrates that if you peel the skin off the avocado (rather than scooping it out), you keep all the good stuff.

Coconut

Getting into a coconut can be tricky if you're stranded on an island, but not if you have a screwdriver, hammer and microwave!

Pomegranate

Last but not least, the ever-nutritious and frustrating-to-open pomegranate! The seeds practically jump out at you when you work them with a wooden spoon.
