But I do know what is just as tastee if not better that is a Florida fruit tree! LOQUATS they are some breed of Japanese peaches that are much smaller and the pit is a bronzy slick oblong thing! We had a tree in the neighborhood in Largo outside Clearwater. YUM! I need to take a walk into my neighborhood here in Tempe AZ to see if the FIGS I spied are ready yet! YUM figgies!

What a great idea. I'll have to find out if apricots can grow in Florida.

I stay on my road and I don't change lanes.

Oh I love apricots too.

We had an apricot tree in the yard when I was growing up. Sure could use one of those now - lol

I love all fresh fruit, but my favorites are apricots, pineapple, blueberries, organic bananas, dark red cherries. When apricots are in season I eat them every day. I love them.

I love most fruits. Just can't seem to learn to like papaya, mango, and kiwi. I keep trying.

Pineapple is actually one of my favorites too -- I love it fresh, no longer like it canned. BUT I don't know how to select a good one. - One time it'll be wonderful, the next time it'll be grainy and not taste as good.

Any advice?

It is hard to pick just one. We always have bananas on hand, but I love grapes and blueberries. And I just love a thinly sliced fugi apple -- much better than chips.

Fruit ! it's still raw but I love to freeze fruit whole and push it through my old champion juicer like if I were going to make nut butter, and the fruit comes out like soft serve icecream... I have made mango, peach, I've rolled bananas in cocoa and in coconut, I've done berry and black cherry! It is so much fun and I can eat icecream for breakfast and not feel guilty!
and I love to go to the middle eastern market and get that breadfruit it tastes like a pineapple vanilla custard!

I don't know if I can choose just one. I love them all but my current must haves are nectarines and watermelon.

I love fruit. I'm a berry person. Raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries - they are my favorites. They are very versatile and you can do so much with them - or just eat them plain.
