Your Favorite Fresh Fruits
« on: July 12, 2015, 05:51:20 PM »
Of the eating kind that is. It really does make a big difference when you have fruit for dessert as opposed to all kinds of overprocessed stuff. Granted sometimes you just have to give in to temptation and indulge. In moderation of course. Anyhow mine :


 1.Raspberries (My fruit and flavor of choice. I love raspberry anything. Red only though.)
 
The rest rotate a bit.

 2.Blueberries
 3.Strawberries (Though when they lack taste, they aren't even top ten.)
 4.Apples  (Honeycrisp, Cameo, Lady Alice, and, when good, Jonagold are my favorites)
 5.Grapes  (Black, though red are okay too.)
 6.Honey Kiss Melon (Sweetest melon ever. Nice crispness too.)
 7.Watermelon (Would rate higher this year but are usually inconsistent.)
 8.Peaches/Nectarines
 9.Cherries (Used to like them more. Got an abnormally large pit a few years ago and cracked a tooth on it.)
10.Blackberries or when good, Black Plums

I used to like those Asian "Sand" Pears a lot. But the taste has fallen off a mountain over the last few years.

For snacking? Gala apples currently.

Also a fan of the berries: black, blue and rasp. it depends on my mood.

I like to blend up five bananas with a bunch of raspberries, blueberries and blackberries, and some water. Delicious.

There is nothing better than fresh off the tree peaches.

I love me some mangoes too. 

I don't like eating bananas straight, but I love them for smoothies.

I love most berries (straw, black, rasp, blue). But the more ripe they are, the worse they are. I like them at just the very beginning of their ripeness.

I actually eat lemons straight. Terrible for my teeth and for giving me mouth ulcers, but fuck it. I love them.

Granny Smith apples are great.

Cherries.

Most grapes.

Bananas.

Peaches.

That's a bit much for me but I do spam copious amounts of lemon juice on my food. Fresh lemon juice, olive oil, and seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic) make for a great sauce for pasta and couscous.

I've always just had the taste for sour things. That's why I like my berries barely-ripe, as well; they are more tart then.

It's seasonal. I've been eating a lot of berries right now. Blueberries and 2% Greek yogurt is my go to food for breakfast, secondsies, snacks and most hobbit style meals. Other berries also get the love, from straw to black to ras. Berries are year round with me, but this is the season where I am and I've been on a big berry kick.

I'm also eating a fair amount of grapefruit these days, but come winter I'm much more of a citrus man with the oranges and the clementines and the like.

Fall I go heavy on the apples, the humble mcintosh is my personal fav. I still eat them throughout the year, but especially fall.

Fresh cantaloupe is great. Watermelon too.

Sadly, I have that thing where peaches and the like cause some kind of minor but uncomfortable allergic reaction on the lips and mouth. Kind of a tingle. It's awful cause I use to love those. I can still eat them with no skin and no problem, but for the most part I avoid them.

I love this time of year.  Driving down the road I found a farm stand that was selling bushels of peaches for cheap as shit.

Just tried a Summer Kiss melon. Quite pleased. This variety is decently sweet, refreshing, and crisp without being tough.

The Kiss melons are a good product line. They resemble cantaloupes but have definite honeydew type qualities that vary from variety to variety.

I love tons of fruit, but black plums that have been properly ripened? I'd describe how amazing it is, but it's essentially a setup for some porno jokes.

I've been really big on watermelon this year.
Plums, love a good black plum.
good grapefruit, hard to find but my favorite when it's good.
