    All you need to do is peel it.

    No. Just peel the skin

    No, but you should peel it.

  • About the only thing you don't need to wash is a banana - as long as you are eating the whole thing. With any other fruit or vegetable that you cut into - the knife blade can bring bacteria from the outside (which you aren't eating) to the inside (which you are eating). Peeling would do the same thing - so go for the rinse.

    You peel the rind off ginger root, so there is no need to wash it.

    You should peel it. The easiest way is using a teaspoon to scrape off the skin. Comes off very easily

    Who uses ginger without peeling it? If you do, then I guess it's a good idea to wash it; but, unless you're going to dice it I suspect that you'll lose ~ 80% of its flavor

    No, just peel, and grate or slice.
