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.

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. 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.

Those look like cajuiles, another fruit I adore!
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 thought of tamarind last night! My girlfriend is from Grenada and makes yummy tamarind balls for treats pretty frequently.

Yep, you're right. They're considered fruit. I've only had green ones and they're not sweet or fruity by any stretch of the imagination. If I have a salsa or sauce with them there has to be something in them to offset the sourness they tend to have.

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.
