What are your top 5 favourite fruits of all time?

#1 Postby compassionategirl » Thu Apr 20, 2006 1:56 pm

Inspired by raw ambition's recent thread, if you could only eat 5 fruits for the rest of your life, which would you choose:

For me, not necessarily in this order:

1. Cherries
2. Blueberries
3. Pineapples
4. Pomegranite/passion fruit
5. Pink Grapefruits
6. GREEN apples or crab apples (okay i cheated that is 6).

I am not too keen on the other fruits, and I absolutely am NOT keen on bananas , red apples (boring!), and plums (especially if they are mushy and over ripe).

1. Cactus figs. In season (when they're from Spain) my wallet actually bleeds.
2. Pineapples. Eat some every day. Never get bored.
3. Persimon. Again the Spanish ones are best allthough Israelis are very good too.
4. Mangoes. They get little lower ranking because you have to eat themm over the sinnk and the fibres stick in between your teeth.
5. Passion fruit. When they are really sweet.
6. Water melon.

And I love berries. But they are not fruit. They're berries. Focus CG, focus :D

i always think of tomatoes as veggies! I love tomatoes, especially campari tomatoes, which are slightly sweet instead of acidic. Cut in half, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with fresh parsely and bake for about 5 minutes and enjoy!

Yumm....

"Nature's candy": I often use that expression! I think I heard it first on The Simpsons! The greatest show ever? Okay that's for another thread.

Here's my top 6:

1. Mangoes/Mangos - both correct, veggymeggy : )

2. Bananas (just awesome: the ergonomics, the colour-ripeness signalisation system...okay I'm making up words here)

3. Strawberries

4. Tomatoes

5. Avocados

6. Olives

A salad of tomatoes, avocados, and olives, with a good helping of pine nuts sprinkled on top, followed by a mango/banana/strawberry smoothie is one of my all-time favourite meals!

That's interesting, I have heard people say they love it or hate it. I didn't care for the Durian very much.
