I just bought a carton of the most fantastic smelling peaches and have been gorging on them for the last few hours!

I would keep them, but they don't last that long, and this makes them less good in the fruit rankings. If they could last and not bruise, like apples, they would be my far and away number 1.

Currently I reckon apples are still the best of the best.

Anyone else?

In reply to ERH: mango is the best and most widely eaten across the globe...
In reply to ERH: Rambutan or mangosteen - they're pretty much the same. I went to Russia recently and was really surprised by how nice the fruit is there - much better than the shite you buy in supermarkets here.

It has to be grapes - especially from NE Italy or Argentina and presented as bottles of red stuff!!!

Eh?? One begs to differ....:. Texture, flavour and aroma are sooo different.

In reply to ERH: Has to the navel(?) oranges in Mallorca in March; to be found in card board boxes on the floor at the greengrocers under the usual standardised colour and size ones. The proper ones are of all different sizes and shapes and colours, and tree ripened. Cost was a pittance. They beat the ones from the trees in the Murray River orchards by quite a ways.

In reply to ERH: Alfonso mangos are about the tastiest fruit you can buy, and the only one I really go mad for. The apple has to win the prize though. So many varieties, they keep really well, and without apples there would be no cider!

the most delicious fruit, though hard to time & sloppy, is a lovely ripe pear.

durian is apparently the king of fruit.

Has to be apples;

- available all the time in as many varieties as you could want
- cheep
- strong, so wont make a mess of the inside of your rucksack like bananas or peaches.
- only need rubbed to be declared as clean enough to eat.
- can eat the whole thing, no left over stone or skins.
- last for ages

In reply to ERH: Although size and dificulty to get in are issues, these two points only add to the brilliance of a watermelon! Delicious, huge, and always bang on! No bruising and plenty to go at!

In reply to simonfish2000:

I am going to go with a peach, warmed by the sun and the juice dribbling down your chin.. yum.

Or may be a charentais melon
or a pawpaw
or pineapple
or strawberries
or gooseberries


arrgh I can't decide!

In reply to ERH: They score low for practicality, but the first time I had wild strawberries is my fondest fruit memory
stonemaster - on 07 Aug 2012
In reply to iksander: nearly as good as bilberries!
