What is Your Favourite Fruit?
Mangoes, banana, apples, pears, cherries, plums, oranges, seedless grapes, come on bring it on, once they are sweet and ripe I will enjoy them.
What is your favourite fruit? Years ago the easy answer for me was banana. Now I’m not so sure any more because I love fruits so much. Banana still ranks high on my list but I really enjoy papaya. I have a soft touch for sweet succulent fruits.
Apple is also right up there but I tend to enjoy apples more whenever I can have it with something sweeter and more succulent. And I love to have my fruits with nuts and raisins whenever possible.
Is there a fruit I do not like? Let me see…guinep. Guinep stains, it does not provide enough flesh for the trouble, and it’s very inconvenient to eat. So I can go years without eating guinep. Yet its Chinese cousin, lychee, is a favourite of mine.
So which is my favourite fruit? Right now I would have to say I enjoy fruits so much it is hard to tell. I had some figs in Egypt recently, and I wondered where that fruit was hiding all my life. I suppose the easy answer is banana.
I know that my wife’s favourite fruit is jackfruit. Large green fruit when cut open reveals yellow and ochre pegs defined by the large seed covered by delicious flesh. Smelly and sticky, the fruit is best enjoyed by persons who have grown up tolerating its exotic characteristics.
Eating for blood type is creeping into alternative medicine. We are now being advised to avoid certain fruits because of how they react with our blood type. So fruits that you may relish may be on the "to be avoided" list, that is, if you buy in to the system. Just when you thought a perfect world was made of fruits and nuts for all to enjoy.
