The best fruit

I live in western Colorado in Grand Junction and we have a great number of
farmers markets and last year I discovered Isralie melons at the market
some times they go by middle eastern melons as some won't touch jewish???
but they are the best melon I have ever tasted. Natural sweet juicy
Good luck tracking them down as I have been all over the world and here is the only place I have found them

you found jewish melons in colorado?

i'm not touching that one.





sorry, can't help it.

how did you know the were jewish, was the vine, umm, trimmed?


fruit is always best, as the saying goes, fresh and local. (i wish i lived where mangos, grapefruit, limes, and bananas grew.)

but for us in joisey and new york, july thru september is the fruit season. i could never pick just one fruit at this time; forgive the pun.

starting in midsummer, my raspberries provide a daily dose of sweetness, and those little seeds you get to munch a few minutes later as your tongue finds them in your teeth.

then we go picking at a few farms/orchards in mid-summer for peaches and plums. you haven't had a peach or plum unless you've worn some juice in a stripe from your chin to your shorts. you start to do that "ripe fruit stoop", if ya know what i mean.

then, the weather cools, and it's apple season in ny state. apples of every shape, size, color, texture, tartness, and sweetness are available. you gorge yourself on them, eating almost as many as you stuff into your bag, it seems.
then you pay your king's ransom these day to lug home more apples than naploeon could fit in a bottle.

so those are my faves, by default of location.

Dude, you're so bad. LOL.

The best fruit I've eaten was uber-fresh Hayden mango. It's my favorite fruit.

Passionfruit for me. Easy to get at, the most amazing perfume, my mouth goes funny just thinking about eating one, they are versatile ( I read recipes for meat sauces with them) and you always know when they are ripe as they are on the ground under the vine, or in a shop feel heavy/full or have wrinkly skin. Curd, frosting,and icecream my favourite uses.
Yep. Passionfruit.

Have you ever tried passion fruit mousse? It is so easy to prepare and delicious. The way I prepare it:
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can light whipping cream
1 cup of passion fruit juice

Blend all ingredients for 10 minutes.
Pour the mousse into individual containers or into a large bowl. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Has anyone tried a fruit called durian? I've never had it but have heard others rave about it. It is suppose to have a funny smell on the outside but when you get inside it is said to have a texture and taste like pudding, sweet and creamy. I think they can be purchased in Asian stores.
