As everyone already knows, fruit easily beats vegetables. What is your favourite fruit?

Strawberries for me.

I live on bananas & I'd get scurvy without orange juice, so those two are the best.

I don't like Kumquats at all. Was just trying to name pretentious sounding fruits.

Kumquats are really good. A rush of both tartness and sweetness.

My mornings generally consist of a massive banana + berry + leafy green smoothie, so I've always got curvy yellow phalli dangling somewhere in the apartment. Yum.

Traditional fruits ranked:

Bananas
Blueberries
Honeycrisp apples
Black Figs
Heirloom navel oranges
Champagne mangos
Young coconuts
Pineapples
Cantaloupes
Cherimoya
Ripe plantains


Non-traditional:

Tomatoes
Avocados
Cucumbers
Yellow bell peppers
Kalamata olives
Zucchini
Walnuts
Sunflower seeds
Green peas
Pumpkin

That may have been random but they were pretty disappointing. Lychees are like disgusting jelly, and kumquats were only slightly better than eating orange rind. Couldve been a subpar batch/sort of course.

Finally had gooseberries but they're really sour after being frozen. Gotta taste some fresh when the season comes.

What's a fruit? What's a vegetable?

Guess I'm partial to raspberries.

And yes, I'm much more of a vegetable man. :poshclap:

I'll do a list too...coconut would probably top it in terms of how much I eat it and the variety of ways I use it, but I basically never have it raw, so I'm not listing it here. Ditto rhubarb.

1. Jackfruit
2. Manilla / Ataulfo Mango
3. White Fig
4. Papaya
5. Date
6. White Peach
7. Persimmon (Hachiya over Fuyu)
8. Cherry (in particular the sweet cherries from Door County, WI)
9. Blueberry
10. Date
11. Strawberry
12. Black Raspberry
13. Papaya

I eat a lot of apples, bananas and oranges but more out of price and convenience than because I love them - if I could get any of the above cheaply and easily all the time I'd probably forget most of the common stuff, snob that I am.

I'm sure he meant for the second one to be "Green Papaya" the scent of which is particularly evocative.

Exactly - though not quite as evocative as fried green tomatoes, which should also have been on my list.
