If I were to name just one, I'd say nectarines. It's hard to get good ones where I live, but if you can get one that's just sweet and juicy, it's so delicious!

I don't have one favorite, but I do like bananas, strawberries (usually chocolate-dipped), grapes and mandarin oranges (the kind in the little cups). I just love the way they taste. Most other fruit just doesn't appeal to my taste buds or won't go down right (as in they end up in clumps in my mouth that I can't swallow. I know, I'm weird like that).

Strawberries can go with so many things and be used in so many ways.  But peaches can be very versatile, also.

I agree; Strawberries are very versatile...and they taste good too. :D Especially with cream or chocolate or something like that. :D
Yeah, I'm new here. Hiya guys :D

Welcome, Vergil Tanner, and good luck with your approval. :-)

Strawberries are fantastic in desserts or alone but I like them in salads and cooked dishes, too.  A chicken salad with spinach, sliced strawberries and thinly sliced shallots served with a warm bacon dressing is one of my favorites.  I'll toss some strawberries, blackberries and blueberries into the pan with braised meat and add a little broth or wine for a sauce.

Oh, I prefer strawberries on their own...although having them alongside some cooked food is very nice. I once bought a pack of strawberries, and they were- no jokes- as big as my fist. I picked one up and thought "Jesus, have I picked up The Strawberry Triffid?" So I ate it before it could eat me. :D

Those sound luscious.  I needed a dish for a bridal shower once and found some strawberries the size of golf balls.  After hulling them and using the small end of a melon baller to open the center I stuffed them with a peach flavored cream cheese and dipped them in dark chocolate.  One of those goes a loooooong way.

Lol, I can imagine! Have you ever tried hollowing out some large strawberries, filling them with a red or white wine of your choice before reattaching the bottom (using a layer of fast-dry chocolate sauce)? :O :O :O They are luscious!

Peaches and strawberries are my favs. It takes a while, but with berries I like to put them in the freezer until they are hard then thaw them out. The cell walls get damaged from the freezing so they sag and drip juice everywhere but it seems like I get a super concentrated burst of flavor when I eat them that way over completely fresh. A nice windfall peach is the best though. :P

I can only eat peaches if I cut them up and spear them with a toothpick or fork. I don't want the juice on my face or hands. I just don't like the way it feels. It makes me shudder. So I spend a lot of time cutting them into the perfect size so that no juice touches anything but the inside of my mouth.

Grapes. Oh, I love grapes. They are by far my favorite fruit, I can just pick a small bundle from the bunch and snack on them. Green, red, black...but the sweeter the better.

Medeira - I like to toss a bunch in the freezer and use it as a quick dessert/snack.  Like tiny individually wrapped slushies :-)

Red Raspberries, but they're very expensive where I live so its only a once a month or so treat

Simple as is, grapes.

Not just because I make my living from them, but also because they're yummy and healthy, especially the red ones. During harvest, I gain about 2kg weight, just from nomming grapes.

Otherwise, strawberries and cherries are also very good. Oh, and did I mention apples?

I've never met a fruit that I didn't like.

I LOVE lychees and longans (lit. dragon's eyes)! They're so sweet and delicious and juicy, not too sweet and so satisfying as you rip off their exteriors to get to the fleshy insides.

I'm also partial to starfruit, strawberries, peaches, plums, apricots, Korean pears.

If you asked me to pick only one, though, I couldn't. :P My only answer would be FRUIT.

Cuties, the small navel oranges, or I guess they are tangerines. They are super sweet, perfect snack size and the whole peel comes off. Yes I love cuties.

Oh, this is a hard question. I'm friends with so many fruits!

To name my favorites: strawberries, kiwi (especially with a dash of salt!), and any sort of berry.

Basically, anything that is not honeydew melon or a citrus (except lemons. I'll eat a raw lemon. <,< But the rest of you can have all of the oranges and their assorted friends to yourselves!)

I would have to say plump blueberries because they are full of flavour and go with pretty much anything! I also like bite sized fruits as an alternative to things like chips.  O8)

Pineapples are one of the fruits that I do enjoy eating in savory dishes. I love me some pineapple fried rice.

Mmm, pineapples might be one of my favorite fruits to cook with. A nice, ripe avocado is also delicious in almost anything fresh... salad, sandwiches, by itself. I love any berry I have ever met, and most melons... mmm.. now I want some fruit salad. Are we talking about only fruit fruits here, or can I add in squash, tomatoes, and cucumbers? I could eat squash almost anyway you can cook it. Grilled, sauteed, stewed, fried.

Alright, now I'm hungry... *runs off to make breakfast, wishing I had some acorn squash and sausage*

Mm. Avocado. Even if it costs more, I usually get it added into whatever food I'm at (dining halls on campus, when I was forced to live off their food; or at places like Chipotle).

And home-made guac?
