Favorite Fruit, and Why?
« on: September 02, 2011, 08:38:59 PM »
I'd have to say my favorite fruit/s are oranges and cherries.  They make a lovely pair, too.  For dessert at my favorite Japanese restaurant, they always give me this little bowl of tiny orange wedges and sliced cherries. :3

I love mangos, and would eat them every day if I had a supply. Strawberries come second.

Kiwis are another favorite, not so much to eat, but because it's fun to say. Kiwi-kiwi-kiwi-kiwi-kiwi-kiwi...

Oranges and Plums for me! I spent some time in Florida and my grandmother grew the most amazing oranges I have ever ate, nice, juicy, sweet..Haven't had an orange like that in six years.

Plums cause I have my own plum tree and eat plenty of them ever year. :P

Mmmm, are we counting berries?  Or maybe berries automatically count as fruit, and I'm just having a 'dun da da' moment lol.

My favorite changes from time to time.  Right now it's Raspberries, yummmmm.

I used to like to go through the produce department and pick out the weirdest thing I could find.  Good finds:  Carambola, Cherimoya, and Kiwano.  Quince didn't impress me at all.

When I have extra money to spend, I do that to!  Anything with pears in the mix is a win in my book.  Which reminds me...pears are so one of my favorites.

Damn, this is a hard question for me, to be honest. I'm very much a fruit person. I think that might be because I don't really enjoy sweets (too artificial to my taste).
I don't think I have a favourite fruit. *thinks deeply* It really depends on what I'm in the mood for. Right now, for one, it would be oranges and mangoes, but at other times I can't stand those.

Oh, PLUMS!  I forgot that I absolutely love a good plum, especially from my grandparent's tree.  Berries too, those are delicious, especially blackberries and boysenberries. :) Blackberry jam is awesome.

Ahh, glad our tastes equal! Nothing is better than a good, fresh, sweet plum!

Damsons.  They grow in my mum's garden too.  I make jam and wine from them.  She also has apricot and apple trees.   :-)

Blackberries.  I just love the flavor, and they're so sweet when you pick them right from the plant.

Blood Oranges.

I tried them in Italy and they blew my mind. I just loved the taste of them. I would eat 2 or 3 a meal and god help me if I got a quart of the juice.

I can never pick an absolute favorite. I am glad they seem to come in waves through the year. If I had to pick a few they would be, blueberries, cherries, peaches, pluots, champagne mangoes and melons...or any fruit that drips to my elbows while eating. Don't make me choose just one.

You don't have to pick one.  I picked about six. (:

Wheeew! Because I just listed the top favorites. I love fruit in all its variety and didn't even mention, apples, figs, pineapple, berries, apricots or dates. Citrus would be up there too, but it messes with my medication.

We get $6 worth of fruits and veggies with the baby's WIC. If there are pomegranates, then we get $6 worth of pomegranates. ^__^ It's a pain to peel off that little bit of fruit meat off the seed so the baby can eat it, but I'm glad she likes it so much.

Pomegranates... want... I haven't had one in what feels like ages and it takes equally long to peel them, but these things range definitely high up in my personal fruit ranking. And, of course, apples. The greener the better. The family of my SO has enough apple trees to make circa 50 litres of fresh apple juice each fall and most of the trees are rare, old sorts that are nearly impossible to find but taste a lot better than the stuff you get in the supermarket. I'll have to keep him just because of that. ;D And I'd better not forget to mention starfruits... divine.

Alton Brown has tips on peeling poms.  I forget which part of the episode it was in, so here's the whole thing.
