What is your favorite "exotic" fruit?
 
I mean, other than apples and oranges and bananas or other super common fruits here in the US (or wherever you live)?

Passion fruit
Loquats
Cherimoyas

I love fruit and wish I lived in a part of the world that has many interesting and unusual kinds. I will try anything I find in the stores and farmers markets here.

My favorite non-apple/orange fruits are mango, kiwi, tomatillos, prickly pears, pomegranate, any unusual melons.

Are pomegranates super common? I like them.

The flavors of passion fruit and star fruit are good, but I don't like the texture.

coilynapp 01-23-2013 12:46 PM

Oooh I've never had a starfruit before. It's very cool looking!

Saria 01-23-2013 01:05 PM

Guavas
Passionfruit
Guanabana aka soursop
Limoncillos aka guinep, mamoncillo, chenette, quenepa, etc
Lychee

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

Not exotic, but seems a lot have not tried it, but I love pomelo. Yummy with a little salt & pepper!!!

i never know the names of the friuts. but my international friends always give me something and say, "eat this, you will like it" and i eat it and i llike it. the names i can either never remember or never pronouce so i just go with it. i do know i love me some lychee nuts. and this other pink colored fruit that reminds me of lychee nuts but have these soft pink prickly things on the surface. i also like a type of mango that is yellow and way more sweeter than the kind i'm use to getting in the states.

Saria where are you from? That's all the stuff I grew up eating in the D.R.

goldy 01-23-2013 01:48 PM

Probably blood orange.

Rusycurly 01-23-2013 01:49 PM

I don't know if this is exotic but I love mangoes!

Josephine 01-23-2013 02:04 PM

Lychee, mangos and kiwis. I know they are not that exotic but I like them for not liking fruit in general.

Po 01-23-2013 02:06 PM

guanabana
quenepa
star fruit

I've always wanted to try dragon fruit. It looks so pretty.

Oh yes. And Guavas! I love those!

Arrayan
Tamarindo
guanabana (delicious! I love these!!)
guayaba
Lima (I've only had in agua)
Mango

A new fruit that I really like: olallieberries.

The one I try to like but seems too dry: nances. Its a shame too because an aunt has a ton of them because of the tree in her back yard.

sarah42 01-23-2013 02:26 PM

Jackfruit
Mango

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

SCG 01-23-2013 02:51 PM

Mangosteen
Rambutan (I think I might've also tried Longan, and I believe I remember liking it! They're sort of in a similar family, along with Lychee)
Dragon fruit

Ericachristina 01-23-2013 02:55 PM

Mango
Guinep
Sugar apple

My family calls guanabana sour sop
