Find a Favorite Fruit

Photo by theseanster93

I am obsessed with trying new fruits.  Part of this is because I write about trees and shrubs and almost all culinary fruits are found on one or the other. I also just love the thought of something sweet and luscious that is good for me!

When I was in California, I had to go shopping for fruit trees for my little patio garden.  I am most excited about my peach/nectarine tree.  Nectarines are my absolute favorite fruit. They are juicy and tangy-sweet and OH SO GOOD! There are only 3 on my tree right now, but I am sure they will be scrumptious.

I've made it a personal challenge to try as many fruits as possible.  I scour the local supermarkets to see what exotic lovelies might have popped in from far away places.  Even when I was on my honeymoon in Hawaii, I dragged my patient husband to a farmers' market and was able to add quite a few new kinds to my "Have Tried" list.

You might even like a fruit that you didn't use to if you try it again.  I never thought I liked mangoes...until I ate it as an adult and decided I loved it! I still can't say I really like any melon except watermelon, though.

My challenge to you is to try a new fruit today. Even if you think you've tried them all, take another look. Your taste buds and waist will thank you!

That's really good advice. I'm leaning to eat melons since my daughter and husband like them. I'm not really a fan, but I keep trying.
