It's cherry season!!! Soooo good. I want a cherry tree.

Ms Misery, Monday, 2 July 2007 14:41 (twelve years ago) link

I cut into a kiwi yesterday, and as I was turning it out to eat the sweet, tender flesh, I got a look at it and thought "wow, this is really pornographic."

Cherries are GREBT. But these days I'm all about them strawberries (with whipped cream). have you guys ever tried to have/make chocolate covered strawberries? YUM!

nathalie, Monday, 2 July 2007 14:44 (twelve years ago) link

I have had them at weddings and fondue, etc. yum.

Cherries gone now. ;_;

Freshly squeezed, sweet red grapefruit juice is high on my list of fruity delites. After that, white peaches. It's very difficult to find either in their perfect states of enjoyability, although I had some killer California peaches 2 days ago.

there are these small local (quebec) strawberries that are amazing - just really fresh tasting yet still sweet and full of flavour, rather than cloyingly sweet

also also what is good is FRESH DATES (from iran, for instance) - they are like candy! but they are fruit!

rrrobyn, Wednesday, 4 July 2007 17:49 (twelve years ago) link

I do eat fruit now!!

I like:

Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, even blackberries. So, mainly berries, but you gotta start somewhere, right? Oranges are okay, but time consuming. Apples and pears, are edible but boring.

blueberries

youn, Thursday, 5 July 2007 01:52 (twelve years ago) link

fuji apples, red or green grapes, strawberries, bananas, oranges

used to love watermelon, but there's never any flavor to the ones I find in the grocery store

milo z, Thursday, 5 July 2007 01:58 (twelve years ago) link

cherries are tops for combining deliciousness with EASE OF EATING; grapes equal them in the latter category but trail far behind in the former. bananas are good but they have a window of like 1.5 days when they are actually edible. apples are tasty and healthy-feeling but your hands get sticky and then when you're done you have to put the core somewhere. orange juice is delicious (especially with TONS O' PULP) but oranges themselves are best left to the world's youth soccer leagues. peaches and strawberries are fine as long as I don't have to worry about washing them or slicing them up.

basically, I prefer fruits which can just be left sitting in a bowl on the table for me to grab whenever I want some (actually now that I think about it this might be true of food in general).

bernard snowy, Thursday, 5 July 2007 02:09 (twelve years ago) link

oh yeah, and watermelon is awesome because it takes messiness and inconvenience to the extreme. if I'm gonna eat a fruit that requires a lot of preparation and leaves me sticky all over*, I'm gonna go all out!

*: there is no non-homoerotic way to phrase this

bernard snowy, Thursday, 5 July 2007 02:11 (twelve years ago) link

it's mango season here

Heave Ho, Thursday, 5 July 2007 02:20 (twelve years ago) link

hurrah

youn, Thursday, 5 July 2007 02:21 (twelve years ago) link

I don't know how to work a mango

bernard snowy, Thursday, 5 July 2007 02:24 (twelve years ago) link

But you dont know how to work an apple, respect the mango- for the greater good of course.

Ahhh yes my heart is glad and my eyes are shining at the thought of rambutan!

Kiwi, Thursday, 5 July 2007 02:59 (twelve years ago) link

I just wanna work your mango, baby.

Where is the satsuma love on this thread?

caek, Thursday, 5 July 2007 09:50 (twelve years ago) link

I spent a happy winter eating navel oranges, carbon footprint be damned. I still don't understand why you can't get a russet apple in this godforsaken country, though. Any number of stupid bloody pink ladies, which are rubbish.

accentmonkey, Thursday, 5 July 2007 10:51 (twelve years ago) link

turn-ons:
bananas

Why doesn't that surprise me.

I quite like strawberries with either whipped cream or dipped (and frozen) in chocolate. It's a terrible mess tyo make the latter. But I should do it again.

Now *resting* at home: strawberries with sugar and lemon. Tonight I will attempt making jam of it. HURRAH!

nathalie, Thursday, 5 July 2007 11:25 (twelve years ago) link

This thread is where I couldn't have found out about mangosteens without neil spending about £3 on a couple of the things only for me to find out that they weren't as nice as he'd led me to believe.

(anyone who was privy to the mangosteen disaster, you'll all be delighted to know that they were selling them for 45p in Tesco the week after that, and then last time we were down in London they were giving the bloody things away in Covent Garden)

Anyway, best fruits: strawberries and kiwis and pears.

one year passes...

I am so sad. They no longer have Pippin apples at the Gelson's Market by my parents' house.

youn, Sunday, 10 August 2008 21:50 (eleven years ago) link

I'm loving me some nectarines at the moment.

chap, Sunday, 10 August 2008 21:51 (eleven years ago) link

search - cherries

destroy - their cost
