I don't think mangoes are that great. Never have. I mean, they're not bad by any means, but every time I go to the grocery store I just walk past 'em and keep on walkin'.


thank you heather papps for this historically great sig!

you gotta keep a mango in the fridge it gets soft on the outside slower and doesnít go bad. Iíve found it takes like a month or so but they get perfect

Mangoes sound like a pretty needy fruit. We don't get them easily where I live, and this thread has convinced me that's okay.

Cherries are pretty good, but if you eat too many of them it messes with your poopin'.

ive never had passion fruit, i could look for them next trip. althouh i googled them and i had no idea they look like a geode filled with little yellow condoms which isnt terribly appealing.

i havent had cherries for a very long time so i cant stand by this, but i have slightly negative feelings for them

my favourite mango is mango lassi, but other mangoes are also good

i have not for several months bought frozen mango chunks, because it's too cold, but once it warms up i will buy another bag and enjoy a chilly mango treat

Is there a delicious nut that also has a tastey outside pulp? Feel like there may be an ultimate food waiting to be discovered

cashew apples nearly qualify I would say, they are just next to the nut rather than surrounding it.

I've tasted coffee cherries and they were not bad. but coffee beans aren't a nut of course.

i am coming out as Pro dragon fruit ---haters back off----

the flavour is mild but pleasant, the texture is delightful - much like a kiwi, and the seeds add a little extra character. great eating experience. only downside is theyre a little pricey

Yessss! Join us, Dragon Fruit Gang best gang.

I like to let mine get a little overripe and then mash it up over shaved ice. It's basically sorbet with less steps. The seeds are the best part; little soft, little crunch, nothing is too much.

They are just so appealing

beer pal



This week's banana bunch had me a bit anxious, as the colour of the peels is quite dull, and none of the bananas available for selection in the store had much green left on them. The texture of this first banana was very good, they don't come much firmer. There was something a bit off about the flavour, though - hard to put a finger on. This could well be a symptom of expectation - the dull peel colour affecting my perception.

An aside - did you know you can put your bananas in the fridge to keep them from further ripening? the peel will go brown quite rapidly, but the fruit will not degrade. I tried this for a short while, but i couldn't get over the psychological effect of the browned peel. it's true what they say that we eat with more senses than just taste.

pear today a bit riper than I prefer but those are nice too, the stronger flavour mostly makes up for the softness

What kinda pear, OP? Bosc, red, Bradford?

beer pal



i'm a bartlett man. of the varieties available at my grocery (bartlett, bosc, anjou) i've found it my favourite. (they also have asian pears which i havent tried because they're expensive)

They're a somewhat large--probably 17cm around--globular, firm fleshed fruit that is mildly gritty textured at first bite, but gives way to intensely sweet, fragrant juice and tender white flesh more like the flesh of a good eating apple toward the core. Very small seeds, of any, present; usually of the cultivar Pyrus pyrifolia; they usually have a deeper tan-yellow skin that is matte and somewhat smooth and unblemished; sometimes they have the telltale "freckles" on them from the ripening process too.

They hold texture and flavor well in cooking, they're probably the most key ingredient to galbi-gui other than the beef itself, and they are fantastic in a salad of rocket, white wine vinegar, olive oil, scallion and herbs.

I have Pear Opinions and I'm not afraid to make them known, online.

I made a pear clafoutis over the holiday and boy howdy it was real good, esp. with whipped cream.

I might have used anjou if the market had good ones, but it ended up being bartlett. worked out real well anyway.

There is a small brown pear, rough and hard, that I once ate.
It tasted of honey and I have never seen it's like since.
Did I dream of this pear? Or am I in the pears dream?

I...I think so?????
It was small, hard and sweet, honey like and crunchy.

They were like the cheapest, penny-saver pear on the shelf as well, so no one seemed to think much of them. But I did.

In other pear news, I have a potted Abate Fetal pear tree that I am expecting to perform this year...or else.
