Reordering time

  1. Honeycrisp Apples (There is nothing else quite like these when they are good. Which they usually are from Oct. to Dec./Jan.)
 1a. Peaches (Best year for peaches ever. They are still really tasty!)
 1b. Raspberries
 2. Hami Melons (Last year was better. But this year was still really strong.)
 3. Strawberries
 4. Grapes  (Usually I am not big on green grapes. But they are sweet lately. The black and red are good as usual.)
 5. Cherries
 6. Cuties / Mandarins / Clementines
 7. Blueberries
 8. Blackberries
 9. Ambrosia Apples and Cameo Apples (My favs when honeycrisp is not around. Though cameo have been mia for the last two years.)
10. Honey Kiss and Summer Kiss Melons  (Kiss line in general is pretty good. Though Honey Kiss is the best and Summer Kiss is the most consistent.)
11. Watermelon
12. Apricots (When decently firm. Too soft is a pass.)

I like black plums. But have not had a good one in two years. The apple pears just aren't the same as they were years ago. I generally prefer honeydew and cantaloupe to watermelon. But they are especially hit or miss. Usually they either taste good but have a meh texture. Or the other way around. Getting both in one is hard.

Blueberries right fresh picked at the blueberry patch
Pears when they're soft, but not insanely so, but a little, yeah
Watermelon, when it's the core good pink part ;P
Cantalope, when the season is right, it's great
Grapefruit, depending on the grapefruit
Big Ass fresh strawberries, like they have in CA
The humble McIntosh is my favorite Apple


I can't eat stonefruit w/o an allergic reaction. It's minor, but still keeps me away from peaches, plums, even cherries, all things I did enjoy at one point, and I guess I could if I took a Zyrtec.

Just typed this up, then went back and reread what I wrote in 2015--can't believe I called the McIntosh humble twice. My mind works how my mind works. It's all very similar.

I've always just had the taste for sour things.


Ever try green apples with a sprinkle of salt?

I think my mom used to do that. But I know she also put salt on lemons and ate them. I never had a taste for it myself.

Not sure what yer nationality is but yeah adding salt with enhance sour fruit is more an Asian thing.

Green mangoes sprinkled with salt & sugar is a thing.

I couldn't get into that when I was over there, but my Filipina then-girlfriend was crazy about it.
