          i just realized what i was watching and how pointless it is to me. for some reason watching a 50 year old man cut fruit is so satisfying.

                            I see a lot of comments abt the fake audience, but I have never heard of some of these fruits, and so I'm grateful that I learned something from this video.

Maybe your second method, which you didn't show, would be the better way. Cut the flower end off, score and peel the skin, spread the sections and then spoon tap. A really effective way to get all the arils off. I picked up a lot of tips to slicing all those other fruits. Well done.
