    Custard apple?

    What the heck, there could be loads of exotic fruits out there sweeter than that...

    You're a chemist? Do you mean that colloquially? Hry, my college buddy / foreign student from Hong Kong gave me a lesson in cutting mangoes along the sides of the huge pit. Then he cut a thatched pattern and inverted the two halves, before eating it. Is that the proper way to deal with thame?

    If non-rotten durians were available in the SE US, I probably would like them. I've heard they are good. Can't let one bad food experience(like the mcchickenhead found in mcnuggets by one person a few years back) ruin it for me.

    I live in a temperate climate, zone 7B, usual low 10 f, rare snow in the winter, frost November-early April(but still to warm in the summer for those #%@* highland neps). Durians wouldn't work here, although they may in a large greenhouse.

    HAs anyone every had rootbeer plant? I tried some at the zoo. I would not recommend this to you ladies. The leaves taste like rootbeer. And it apparently commonly gives women bladder-infections but the botanist at the zoo did not know why. It was sort of like chewing mint leaves (some have spines you know).

    I have always wanted to try a durian. But you never see them here.

    I like passionfruit and lychees. Lychees are goood. Fresh figs are a favorite. I used to pick them fresh off my grandmother's fig bush when I was a kid. Gooooood. There are a lot of people who have never had a fresh fig.

    I like trying new kinds of fruit. I've never heard of some of the ones mentioned here. I will have to look for them.
