        Oooer, what a monster!

        Can we class tomatoes as a vegetable, so it's possible to keep tomatoes and have a sweet fruit as well?

        My favourite fruit is raspberry so I'd have to keep that I suppose.  Don't want to lose any of the others, though!

      I'm with you.  It has to be grapes.  My friends have been known to hide theirs if I'm in the acinity because I can't resist them.

    It would have to be strawberries, but only if I could freshly pick them each day from my strawberry patch - we grow a variety called Pegasus and they are the best I have ever tasted!

    I'd have to agree on the tomatoes...and yes, definitely home-grown, the store-bought ones have so little flavor. If it could be classified as a vegetable for this purpose, then raspberries.

      I've just potted up 20 Gardener's Delight tomato plants (don't know if you have them in the US), plus this year I'm also growing some little hanging basket ones.  Fingers crossed, we'll be swimming in tomatoes by September.  What doesn't get eaten raw or made into sauce will go in the freezer to add to stews and chillis!

  31. Rafini profile image71
    Rafiniposted 12 years ago

    Only one?  Are you serious?  Why?  Are they outlawing all the other yummy fruits?  Oh, man!  I can't! 

    I can't reject the banana's for the oranges - they taste too good together with a bit of sugar.  I can't refuse pineapple when mixed with strawberries.  Muskmelon tastes best when found with cantaloupe.  Blueberries and strawberries are great with yogurt.  Apples, either plain or with peanut butter, but which kind of apple do I like best??  Kiwi - yum!  Mango juice is good.  So is passion fruit. 

    I can't, I tell you.  I just can't choose!  Okay, I know what I'll do.  I'll close my eyes and point to the screen....and whichever fruit I point to will be the favorite fruit of today.....

    Oranges!  lol
