Fruit Poll

Now that summer is here and the heat is on (it is over 100 here today), I'm back to eating more fresh fruit and loving it.  So I thought I'd do a poll.

1.  What are your favorite fruits?

2.  Do you have a fruit that you only eat in the summer?  If so, why?

3.  What is your least favorite?

4.  Do you have a fruit splurge?

5.  What is the most unusual fruit you have tried and did you like it?

    1.  What are your favorite fruits?
    Strawberries, raspberries, watermelon, kiwi, bananas

    2.  Do you have a fruit that you only eat in the summer?  If so, why?
    Watermelon and cantalope - they taste best in summer

    3.  What is your least favorite?
    I'm not a huge fan of plums or fresh blueberries.

    4.  Do you have a fruit splurge?
    I only buy raspberries as a splurge because they are expensive!

    5.  What is the most unusual fruit you have tried and did you like it?
    I had a persimmon once at my cousin's house and it was really ripe and so yummy.  I don't usually buy them because I'm not sure what to look for.

    I should have had a #6 - Did you know...
    Did you know that tomatoes, eggplant and cucumbers are all fruit?

    1.  What are your favorite fruits? Melons.

    2.  Do you have a fruit that you only eat in the summer?  If so, why? I almost exclusively eat them in the summer, because that's when they're in season.

    3.  What is your least favorite? I only like grapes once they're fermented.

    4.  Do you have a fruit splurge? Pomegranates in the winter.

    5.  What is the most unusual fruit you have tried and did you like it? horned melon (clicky) I didn't really like it.


    The trick with persimmons is to wait until after first frost, they'll be bitter until then.

    1.  What are your favorite fruits?
    Any kind of berry, peaches, pineapple.

    2.  Do you have a fruit that you only eat in the summer?  If so, why?
    Watermelon -- it just doesn't make sense in any other season.

    3.  What is your least favorite?
    Probably bananas, although mostly I'm just fussy about them being at the right level of ripeness -- when they get too soft, the texture grosses me out.

    4.  Do you have a fruit splurge?
    Rainier cherries . . . so expensive, and so worth it.

    5.  What is the most unusual fruit you have tried and did you like it?
    I had some strange fruits in Guatemala but my Spanish is terrible so I'm not sure what they were called . . . I liked them fine, except that I was worried about getting parasites so it was hard to enjoy them completely.

    I 1.  What are your favorite fruits?  avocado, cherries, peaches, bananas, watermelon, blueberries

    2.  Do you have a fruit that you only eat in the summer?  If so, why?  pretty much all of those above.  I am not a big fan of the fruits we get in Chicago in the winter because they usually come from South America or Mexico and are ripened in the box.  The taste is never as good.  I eat lots of apples, pears and grapefruits in winter

    3.  What is your least favorite?  oranges

    4.  Do you have a fruit splurge?  berries in the winter, out of season fruits when I just have to have them and they are expensive

    5.  What is the most unusual fruit you have tried and did you like it? it might not be that unusual but last week I bought sour cherries from Michigan at the farmers market and they tasted exactly like Sour Patch Kids.  DELICIOUS!

    4.  Do you have a fruit splurge? - not really. Maybe the organic bananas?

    5.  What is the most unusual fruit you have tried and did you like it?- Hmm, I guess persimmon, which I like. Oh wait, that's my splurge - I buy them around Christmas. Or starfruit, which is pretty good. Citrusy.

    Oh I just love fresh maryland summer produce. Peaches, berries, watermelon, and toamatos are so good around here these days!

    Mery - if you're buying organic so as not to ingest the chemicals, bananas are an OK thing to just buy regularly.  Their peels are so thick, and you take them off, so you don't really ingest the chemicals anyway. 

    Strawberries on the other hand, are probably the most important fruit to buy organically because they just absorb anything that comes in contact with them, including the chemicals. 

    If you're buying organic because it's a better eco-option, then ignore what I just said.

    4.  Do you have a fruit splurge? Berries year round. Can't help it.

    5.  What is the most unusual fruit you have tried and did you like it? Hmm, not sure. Maybe pomegranate, but that's not really unusual.
