Kiwi clovers

Although I think it's best to always peel kiwis (the hairy skin can cause throat irritation if ingested), the California Kiwifruit Commission says the skin is safe to eat

For this garnish, use a paring knife to notch one side of the fruit slices. For the stem, cut a narrow strip from the outside of the kiwi.

This kiwi clover is pretty on pineapple slices and desserts.
