I've tried, apple, mango, banana, pineapples,
I've tried figs, kiwi, lychee and their cousins
Peaches, nectarines, cherries.
Some strawberries, blackberries and grapes
But nothing compares to ripe juicy pears.
Favorite fruit thread and why!
I like dark juicy cherries and ripe peaches. The kind you can smell from across the room. That said, I once bought strawberries that tasted like strawberry candy. It was hard to believe that something that grew naturally could have that intense a flavor.
best fruit? the guanabana
Tried this in teh Dominican Republic.
it tastes like fruit custard!
I really like Pineapple.
The supermarkets here have the small bags of it and sell it off for 10p a bag when it's perfectly ripe and past the sell by. The sweet acidity is so refreshing
Pears are great, not too sweet but with just the right ratio of juice to flesh. I have a pear tree but they tend to come out too dry for me.
Grapes are my favorite, seedless Flame more than any other type. They can be a bit too sweet, especially if I have too many but are otherwise perfect for smaller snack portions. I like to have a small bundle of grapes along with a sandwich during lunch.

I don't know where you can find it in the US. Probably where you can find shipped South American fruits. I live in SEAsia, so I see this often and had a tree of this once when I was growing up.
