    I buy my exotic fruit at a farmers market. My favorite kind so far is the cherimoya(one of the highest sugar concentrations of any fruit, tastes like fruit sherbet) my least favorite has been the notorious durian ('nuff said). Post what unusual fruit you are a fan of. I'd be interested to know if anyone here has accquired a taste for (gag) durian.

    I like pummellos, although they really aren't as exotic as you'd think, being a cross between a grapefruit and a tangerine or something. I like them because they're enormous (before you peel them) and taste kind of like strawberry lemonade. They also remind me of the berries that Yoshi eats in Super Mario World. I developed a taste for a lot of wierd fruit when I was on student exchange in Korea, but I don't know what any of it is called. I seem to remember that lotus bulb was pretty tasty pickled, although that's a veggie.

    I almost always eat more "exoctic" fruit then not. I readily enjoy lychee, durian (we eat it in the backyard), star fruit, persimins....

    I see you are fond of the Annonas than, a large tropical genus. cherimoya is annona cherimola



    I beleve soursop (annona muricata) drinks and ices are very refreshing, but fresh its rather fiborus
    info on this plant

    Custard apple (annona squamosa) is also good

    BY far and away, most who have tasted the rare The mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana) agrees it is amoung one of the worlds finest. Unfortunatly it does not travel well and doesnt want for fruit outside its native area of southeast asia.


    Jackfruit is intnteresting, but not one i would call 'good'

    I tried Keppel fruit (Stelechocarpus burahol) and it tasted like a spicey mango. MMMMmmm. I think if jumscott likes mangos, he would also like this


    Ever tried Ceam nuts from lecythis pisonis? Really tastey nuts
    that makes no logic

    No, it's a kiwano, also called a horn mellon, they are filled with a sour, bitter, green pulp. They taste rather like sour squash, hate 'em. I also hate durians, or at least the one I bought. It was squishy and a sickly orange color inside, as opposed to a firm white durian. It had the wonderfull aroma of gasoline and rancid cat pee. It tasted like it smelled, probably because it had spent weeks fermenting in a ship from Thailand(where it was grown). I bought the whole 12lb durian for 99cents(another indication it was rotten). I've heard that fresh from the tree durians are expensive deicacies. They don't smell at all when fresh, but after a day they get their trademark scent.
