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??

Guavas
Passionfruit
Lychee

Not exotic, but not eaten by many and that I love are persimmons and kumquats.

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.

I don't like dragon fruit because I find it just sweet and bland.

Jackfruit
Mango

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

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.

Tomatillo? I ve always thought of it as a vegetable. Am I interpreting the word right? Those green tomatoes used in 'salsas'?

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.

I love strawberries and grapes in season. Not so much out of season. If I do go back to DR (I forgot to answer the poster who asked me that in this thread, sorry), I know I'll miss apples. Apples suck in the DR. They're pretty much all mealy and flavorless. I'll never bother to make an apple dessert there.
I don't think you're missing out on dragon fruit, even if they're beautiful.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE tomatillos. I've never considered them a fruit though.

huh. I make a mean entomatada with them. Chicken tacos bathed in a tomatillo/crema sauce.

mmm..... Now I want entomatadas.

The picture of the mango reminded me of the RM who was trying to slice the mango and then left it hacked into on the counter for three days last week.

I've already told her how to cut them. How to make the cubes and turn the skin out. ruining mangos!

Divegirl, Do rambuchan and lychee taste as similar as they look? The inside looks the same.
