your favorite fruit?

i fucking love lyches, they only sell them during winter, but man, the sweetness is great, you skin them like egg, and eat the juicy jelly inside, the smaller the seed the sweeter the pulp.

Grew up with these in South Africa. Love them. The ones I've had in the US aren't anywhere near as sweet. Damn shame.

Best fruit, too bad they're expensive and are mostly shell and stone. So I just buy those chinese lychee flavor drinks instead

Love the taste of lychees, but the texture of fresh ones can be disappointing sometimes. I wish I could get a good supply of them or these somewhere local.
>>
>>7286118
Pears, especially seckles.
>>
>>7286118
here in Amsterdam we can get so called dragon lychees from the Chinese stores. They are as big as a fist and have a seed as small as a mung bean. The thick delicious sweet meat fruity flavour of the flesh is just incredible.

Cherries master race

Dragon fruit. Everyone seems to think it's tasteless but you're all eating it wrong. You slice it and then squeeze fresh lime over it and suddenly you have the most orgasmic fruit in the world. Also passiflora and papaya. And then mango and cherries for regular fruit
>>
>>7289741
Aren't those rambutans?
>>
So everyone agrees that it's pronounced "lye chee" and not "lee chee", right?
>>
>>7289892
In mandarin they're pronounces as "lee chee". I think in cantonese it's "lye chee" so, either way I suppose.
>>
>>7290147
They're not pronounced 'leechee' in Mandarin. The closest way I can think of describing how it's pronounced is 'lee j-'. The 'j-' would be pronounced as though you wanted to say, 'I just pooped my pants' but then you second guess yourself and say, 'I j-... ust need to go see a man about a horse'.

The thing is that the closest way of describing that 'j-' in English writing is with 'ee' but its a completely different 'ee' to the one for 'ly'. Kind of like 'e' changes a lot depending on the word, like in 'the' and 'lemon'.

You tried.

Lee-(soft)chuh kind of describes it. I spent 2 months living in suburban Xian after learning the language for 2 years. That's how all the guys selling them said it.

I tried too. Pronunciation is hard.

I still was spit on by older Chinese drunks while walking around town despite doing my best.

Peaches are great.
Also, Flip mangoes. Soft, sweet, juicy pieces of heaven, from what I remember. Other kinds don't even come close.

Also my favourite fruits are yellow peaches/ nectarines, strawberries, limes, pineapple if it didn't burn my mouth so much. Mango is also nice. Tart fruits are my favourite. I actually live somewhere lychees are relatively common/ abundant but I'm not so keen on them. Grapes and melons are also mediocre.

I actually don't know the English name for this frui but Santol and green mangoes are my all time favourite. Especially when the green mango has a firm, yellow flesh and it still has that snap when you bite off a chunk. My mouth is watering just thinking about it

>>7286118
One time in high school my friend and I stumbled upon a lychee tree as big as a two floor house. We robbed that fucker and drove home with garbage bags full of bright red lychees. Now I hang out with another friend who has a small tree in his yard which produces lychees 100x crisper and sweeter than anything store bought. This is in Tampa.

Lychees > all fruit

Jackfruit it pretty tasty. Damn, now I need to buy one.

In my country it's considered a poor person's food that you only eat if you can't afford real food.

If anything I'd compare the texture to the hugely popular fruit cups, which also happen to come in lychee flavor.

Make way for the best fucking fruit. faggots.

I'd have mangosteens for every meal of the day if it weren't for the fact that they're so gosh darn expensive.
>>
>>7297176
They said the same shit about lobster. It tastes good so what does it matter. You and your shit hole country can fuck off.
>>
>>7286118
Oranges and tangerines. My parents had a bunch of trees behind their house. That stuff was good
>>
>>7297455
You have to go straight to the source e.g. Thailand or Malaysia for the best ones. From my experience travelling around SE Asia, mangosteens are easily damaged and bruised during transportation, resulting in lower quality and more expensive fruits overseas.

see my comment >>7289844
>>
>>7298618
What's so important about the lime? Is it just the complementary flavours or is it also the acid affecting the state of the fruit?

I'll try your suggestion but I'm not sure if it would even be good because I doubt the quality of the produce I can get. Do you have any tips for selecting good dragon fruit?

I'd say it's a bit like the difference between a naff pear and a great pear. They're pretty similar, but lychees have more of the good bits.

I love pomegranates but they're too inconvenient to eat and they stain everything if the juice drips on it. I used to have a pomegranate tree in my back yard. Shit was cash

Also kiwis and peaches are amazing
>>
>>7286118
Lyche are too much of a pain to peel. Fresh guava are amazing. You can only get them imported though so they're hard and dry here.
>>
>>7301924
I always buy guavas from walmart when I'm drunk.. And they're always horrible. Small and hard and bland. Don't know why drunk me always wants them.


My favorite fruit.. It's difficult. A perfectly ripe mango is amazing. But I love pineapple as well.
Probably have to go with a good mango.
