      Mmmmm, yes.  I went blackberrying a couple of weeks ago and got a bumper crop.  Most of it went into the freezer.  Making blackberry crumble today as a matter of fact.

      I also like:

      plums, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and the very early apples you get in England in August (the variety is called Discovery and it has a lovely tangy flavour).

        I eat it on its own. Best taste in the world.

        Although when I was trying to induce labor at 41 weeks I had a yellow fruit salad:

        Mango, Pineapple and Banana. big_smile

    Peaches!!
    The type grown in southern Ontario, Canada are incredibly juicy, with a nice semi-soft and mealy texture, and a flavour to-die-for.  It's easy to pry the fruit off the pit as well.  Quite unlike the California or Florida peaches, which are generally a much denser texture and a lot less juicy. 

    You guys don't know what your'e missing. smile

    I've got peaches, blackberries, pears, apricots and grapes growing in my backyard.

    As I am more or a chocolate fudge kinda guy, you are all welcome to come and get them before the @#%@^@^@ birds, squirrels and raccoons finish them off

    While most of my family goes for huckleberries and mangoes and strawberries are good, nothing can quite compare to blueberries.  A topping for cereal, by themselves with a little cream, or with shortcake and whipped cream nothing compares.

    Any berry is really nice over the summer...I'm lucky in California that we tend to have most fruit year around (imported from South America over the winter).

    I love summer fruit.  Too bad it's now heading into fall.  I think my favorite is a perfectly ripe and juicy peach.  Romeo, Michigan has some great Peach orchards.  YUM!

    Mango - if eaten on it's own.

    Also papaya when made up as an iced papaya shake with a touch of nutmeg - just divine!
