The key to fruit is getting it in season and just the right ripeness. A lot of fruit is terrible when it's out of season. If you don't like fuzzy fruit try nectarines and plums. Make a blueberry topping with fresh or frozen blue berries and put it in your oatmeal or yogurt. Tangelos or tangerines instead of oranges, much easier to peel. I'm also thinking you've only tried red delicious apples which are the worst named food item ever. Honey crisp, pink lady, cameos are all really good. I got a variety the other week and I can't remember the name, but they were so good.

As long as you like a variety of vegetables, that's fine.

How about plums or cherries? There are also a bunch of different types of melons (canteloupe, honeydew, and watermelon, just to name the most common)--not sure which one(s) you don't like.

Why don't you try blending the fruits in a smoothie? Blend a banana and 1 tsp peanut butter with a cup of almond milk.

Apples - there are many different varieties. The Washington reds we grew up with I agree are blah, but Pink Ladies, Honeycrisp, and Pacific Rose are sweeter and some of my favorites. Ask at your local produce department to sample their sweetest apples and see what they cut open.

Kiwi - you know that you cut the fuzzy part off, yeah? That's the skin and generally isn't considered edible.

Fuzzy peaches - try nectarines instead. Also, giving a good rinse while rubbing down a peach will remove fuzzies.

Strawberries and blackberries - these really need to be eaten in season. There is a very clear difference between January strawberries and July strawberries.

You also don't have to eat fruit plain if you really honestly don't like it. Add it to yogurt or oatmeal, sprinkle a little bit of honey, sugar, or salt on it (be sure to account for the calories in honey and sugar), add fruit to a green salad.

Do something everyday that your future self will thank you for.

How about blueberries, pears, or mango?

Also pineapple is really good in stirfrys and fun to grill too. Slice of grilled pineapple+scoop of vanilla ice cream = summer :D

I'm really picky about my fruit as well. If it has hair or fuzz, I won't eat it. I love bananas though, with almond butter on them. I really like the little clementines. easy to peel. I won't eat berries because of the seeds and most are too tart for my palate. I love a good cantaloupe though.

I mean there is NO rule that says you have to eat fruit. Veggies are just as good IMO. I would rather eat green beans or broccoli than pick up an apple.

It is what it is....

Hahaha, you sound lazy. Although I prefer the skins of fruit for extra vitamins, you can skin your "fuzzy" fruit and eat them. If you consider eating fruit to be too much work, do it ahead of time and bag it. It's important to get your fruit and veggies in, although veggies are more important, in my opinion, than fruit.

I think it's mostly the textures I don't like. Strawberries are grainy as are blackberries. Peaches are fuzzy, and melons just don't taste good! Pineapple is okay, but not sure what to do with it. Kiwi - fuzzy. Grapefruit -- too sour. Oranges okay, but a lot of work. Apples --- just plain blah.

What kind of fruit have you tasted that you don't like? There are endless amounts of fruit out there, and I'm sure that there are many you haven't tried. Saying y ou don't like fruit is sorta like saying you don't like food... there's too many flavors, textures, and varieties to really make a blanket statement like that.

I really can't stand the taste of any fruits. I can tolerate a banana, and certainly enjoy a few grapes in my wine, but that 's it.

Any suggestions?
