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!
