I forgot about acerola! My titi makes juice from acerolas.

Tamarindo nectar is yummy although also reminiscent of sweaty socks.

I love pomegranates and longans which I hadn't had until last year when one of my mom's friends gave her some and we had no idea what they were or how to eat them lol. They were delicious though after I googled and found out about them.

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.
The purple ones are sweeter and I like to eat them plain right out of the husk.

I want to try a monster fruit! So interesting looking.
Lychees always make me think of eyeballs.
Longans do too (I've never heard of or seen them before).

yea I hadn't heard of longans before then either I wouldn't even know where to get them. The guy that gave them to my mom called them dragon eye fruit and said we'd like them which we did. I remembered keeping one of the seeds because of how shiny it was

Ooh, what does monster fruit taste like? Looks cool.

My favorites are mango, tamarind, kiwi, and guanabana.

Monster fruit is delicious! It comes from the Monstera deliciosa plant which is a common ornamental plant in warm climates. The fruit taste is somewhere between a banana and pineapple. The scales fall off from one end to the other over a period of several days as the fruit ripens.

We had a Delicious Monster plant in our backyard when I was growing up.

Lingonberries are not widely available here. So I'll consider them exotic.
