ISO spicy summer fruit dessert

I'm looking for some inspiration on a summer fruit dessert theme, and thought it might be a little different and interesting to make something spicy. I'm not sure where to start.

Maybe something with a little bite? Maybe something with an interesting/unusual taste?

Thanks!!
RusticCajun

Wow! Zing! Thanks so much!

I like that savory cherry recipe. As I was mulling it over, I was thinking that a cherry might have the kick I was looking for. (Watermelon gazpacho!! Wow! They all look good!)

"Savory"! I was missing that word when I was looking before.

Thanks, CI!

I like to use candied ginger in things, provides that sweet "bite" to granola, struesel toppings, ice cream, scones...
