It's blood orange season in Florida and they are my favorite. The oranges are all good here but bloods are especially sweet and juicy with no seeds. MMMMMMMMMMM

Wish I could share blood oranges with everyone:read about blood oranges

Cherries from Michigan are my second favorite fruit.

We had a mango tree at the old homestead in south florida and I find them stringy to eat and difficult to bite into or chew, messy, and difficult to cut into bite size pieces. Plus your fingers get unbearable sticky.

I love picking blueberries and I have four bushes to plant in the yard as we speak. Still too cold I think. Are Moroccon clementines red inside? What do they taste like?

Grapes are the most widely grown fruit in the world I'm told.

Grapes! I love grapes! How could I forget grapes!

And pomegranates. How could I forget pomegranates. And lemons. I used to eat them with salt when I was a kid.

Watermelon. Musk melon. Cantelope. But only when they are super sweet, juicy, and ripe.

Strawberries. Dipped in dark chocolate!

Thanks Sandra. I once visited Lismore (far North-East in New South Wales for furreners) and they have a variety of custard apple that is the size of a football. Wonderful flavour too!   They don't carry it seems so they're not found far from where they are grown. Have you tried them with passionfruit squeezed over them?
And yes! Plums - greengages! We must get together one day and have a feast. Cheers, Joy

Fresh Figs!

It's still my most intense memory of when I lived in Greece- going to a nearby tree and picking off fresh figs, peeling and eating them. YUM!

I'm utterly convinced that these were the original "Forbidden Fruit".

harpgirl - I hope you can find a custard apple somewhere, they are yummy & got their name cos of their custardy taste. I originally met them under bad circumstances. Our office went to the conference room of a 3/4 star hotel for a @#$%^& boring Sales Training session. The only good thing about the day was the custard apples on the buffet & I got addicted.

Great happiness today when I went to the fruit market - PLUMCOTS are around at their ususal price of around $16 per kilo when other plums are $6 or $7 per kilo, but I have 5 delicious plumcots in various stages of ripeness just waiting to be eaten. They are a new fruit & not many growers plant them, but I assume as more people eat them, more will be planted & prices will fall.

Now does a plumcot go with strawberry yohurt, or will I wait tll tomorrow to eat one? Answer - Put yoghurt back in fridge & get a plumcot. I just patted one & it's not quite ready to eat, so I will go to bed on the anticipation of a plumcot tomorrow

It's getting closer to the noise of New Year & I want to be asleep before everyone starts yelling their lungs out. bah humbug to noisy new year revellers.

Custard apple, huh? A tropical fruit, not to be confused with a real apple, let alone a costard apple (a cooking apple), which is the root element in the good ol' Cockney costermonger...

Which the rest of you no doubt knew, but which was confusing me somewhat till I went & looked it up!

Blackcurrants! So there! ;-)

Yes! I wondered if anyone except Aussies would know what they are. I discovered that they come from South America, though, so I thought they should be able to travel from there to the North. They do manage to get here in Victoria (Aus) from tropical Queensland. True-Love says he only met them in Asia and not in the USA where he grew up. Don't know why you should be deprived of such wonderful fruit. Cheers, Joy

We get lovely figs from the tree in our garden and the grapes we grew in 2004 were lovely (bloody birds thought so too)

Jade (my better half) loves durian, a fruit from SE Asia which has a nice custardy taste, the down side is that it stinks like a freshly opened drain. If you can get past the smell then the taste is great.

for some weird reason, what used to be called "plumcots" soon after they were invented are now sold as "pluots" in some parts of the US...

I love fruit in season that is locally grown; so here that means apples (Macouns!), peaches, raspberries and pears...and in winter, I tend to eat a lot of grapefuits, tangerines, oranges, clementines, etc. from Florida...

I also love fresh pineapple when it's ripe...

Oranges. For the following reasons:

Great energy source, tons of anti-oxidants, proven to boost immunity, more dietary fiber than an apple or banana, in-expensive to buy, You can eat one without having to wash it since the skin is removed upon consumption, thus you can buy and eat one while traveling when there are no washing facilities available.

Also I like the segments to tear apart, they're funnier to eat, and teach you to appreciate the food that is in front of you. Pyschologically it is a great dieter's food for this reason. You don't just gulp it down in one swallow like you might a banana.

The best oranges are the ones with the darkest colored skins, the thinner the skin the better the flavor inside. The juicest oranges are the ones that are the heaviest, so hold at least two in you hand and compare the weight, It you get the heavist ones, you will never, ever get a dud orange.

Tropicana Florida oranges are the best for juice and flavor, California Navals are way to dry and tasteless: the soil is too sandy and dry in California and the fruit does not get the water it needs to be juiceful.

If going for Naval Oranges, the Austrlian varieties are better than the American or South American sources.

If like to hand pick oranges for purchase, I do not like the ones that come in pre-marked packages, they are usually woody in texture, dry and tasteless.

Probably more than anyone wanted to know about a favorite fruit, but they are my passion, and yes, I DO HAVE A LIFE!

Rabbi,

What is jackfruit and where can I find it?

Just curious. I would have PM'ed you but I felt others besides myself might also have never came in contact with this fruit.

Please explain if you get the chance.

Most Grateful!

Jackfruit originates from SE Asia, slightly spiky green outside skin which when opened has a lovely yellow tasty fruit inside. The taste is a bit like banana and peaches, wonderfull smell to.

Best one come from Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia. I have seen some 2 feet long.
