A fresh pineapple that my friend brought me back from her vacation in Hawaii.

No path leads to yesterday.

It's flesh is bright orange and there is no stringiness. You have to eat it to believe it.
When I heard that the US was not able to import these I was very excited. I searched high and low and was willing to pay a premium (I had heard of them going for as much as $15 a mango) just to get a taste, but I was unable to find them. I love mango and from what I hear, no mango I have ever tasted even comes close to the Alphonso. I can only imagine how much better it can get.

My favourite fruit is pomegranate and sugar cane (we consider it as a fruit in India)
