I mean, other than apples and oranges and bananas or other super common fruits here in the US (or wherever you live)?

    I love fruit and wish I lived in a part of the world that has many interesting and unusual kinds. I will try anything I find in the stores and farmers markets here.

    My favorite non-apple/orange fruits are mango, kiwi, tomatillos, prickly pears, pomegranate, any unusual melons.

    Are pomegranates super common? I like them.

    The flavors of passion fruit and star fruit are good, but I don't like the texture.

    i never know the names of the friuts. but my international friends always give me something and say, "eat this, you will like it" and i eat it and i llike it. the names i can either never remember or never pronouce so i just go with it. i do know i love me some lychee nuts. and this other pink colored fruit that reminds me of lychee nuts but have these soft pink prickly things on the surface. i also like a type of mango that is yellow and way more sweeter than the kind i'm use to getting in the states.

    Lychee, mangos and kiwis. I know they are not that exotic but I like them for not liking fruit in general.
  • PoPo Posts: 2,607Registered Users
    guanabana
    quenepa
    star fruit

    I've always wanted to try dragon fruit. It looks so pretty.

    Arrayan
    Tamarindo
    guanabana (delicious! I love these!!)
    guayaba
    Lima (I've only had in agua)
    Mango

    A new fruit that I really like: olallieberries.

    The one I try to like but seems too dry: nances. Its a shame too because an aunt has a ton of them because of the tree in her back yard.

    Jackfruit
    Mango

    Passion fruit eaters, how do you eat them? In Uganda, passion fruit is typically served as juice--is there another good way?

    Mangosteen
    Rambutan (I think I might've also tried Longan, and I believe I remember liking it! They're sort of in a similar family, along with Lychee)
    Dragon fruit

    Dragon fruit

    That is beautiful. I had never heard of dragon fruit so I looked it up and saw it tastes like a cross between kiwi and pear. If this is accurate, I would love it. Those are 2 of my favorite fruits.

    Unfortunately I have not had the opportunity to try many exotic fruits. I will never forget the first time I saw, and ate a kiwi. It was exciting. I love mangos, and a few others that were mentioned.

    As Saria said, persimmons and kumquats are not exotic but they are harder for me to find now. Persimmon trees are native to NC and were everywhere when I was little. Kumquats adapted well in my area, but you can no longer find either in the woods.
    When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

    Plus pomegranates, tomatillos, starfruit, yuzu and dragon fruit

    I like sour fruit that is not super sweet, so I typically prefer fruit that is not quite or just becoming ripe. Many of these fruit stay sour even when ripe so they're favorites.

    Me too on the tart fruit! I love yuzu! Tamarind is another favorite.
    I don't like dragon fruit because I find it just sweet and bland.

    You poke a hole with your teeth at the top and suck out the goods. Or use a spoon. :lol: I ate so many growing up! I love the crunchy seeds.

    I can buy guavas here at Indian or Latin supermarkets, but they're like $4.50/lb, so one guava sets you back $9. I still buy them if I see them. :)

    Dragon fruit is so beautiful. I've never had one but if it tastes anything like dragon fruit Vitamin Water, I would be addicted.

    Living in paradise means I get to eat (regularly) a lot of the exotic fruits that you guys like.

    I miss star apples though, haven't had any in a while.
    I freaked when I saw a sugar apple in HK because I had been missing those.
    Locally, I love guineps (yum) and Otaheite apples (with salt), guavas are a special class of love.

    I know this is going to sound so mundane to most of you because you are surrounded by them all the time, but I love grapes and strawberries.
    I want to try dragon fruits.I saw them when Iw as HK but never went to buy one. I kick myself about that all the time.
    I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.
