What's the Best Fruit You've Ever Eaten?
I think chocolate-covered strawberries will always be my favorite, but some deliciously memorable fruits I've had include pomegranate and lychee: Lychee - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

on a hot summer day, cool juicy watermelon is sheer ambrosia! But a ripe white peach is perfection. and in the fall it's crisp tart apples...fuji and braeburn my faves.

Durian is good. It's flavor is hard to describe because it doesn't taste like any other fruit. To say it has a funny smell is an understatement. It freakin' reeks.

Probably the most unique to me and very tasty was the lychee "nut", which I think is actually a fruit. I love almost every fruit so it would be hard to say my favorite, though I don't care for mangos at all.

Asian pears are an outstanding fruit, especially the ones that are about the size of a saoftball. No only can you just eat them raw right off the tree, but you can use them to replace either apples or pears in any recipe.

Fresh lychee (the kind you have to peel to get to, not out of the can) and fresh watermelon that was "juiced". Passionfruit is DEVINE!

I never met a fruit I didn't like. I was blown away the first time I tasted a tangelo (so juicy).

Tangelo

Not to be confused with this tangello:
