That question can only be answered by asking the question "What season is it??"

In late spring early summer around here.... Fresh Strawberry
In mid summer...... Melon of all sorts
In Summer...... Fresh Peaches
In late summer early fall..... give me fresh Apples
In Fall..... Apple Cider cold and sweet


Then of course there is berry season.

I miss living in the south for fresh citrus when in season.
I miss Hawaii for fresh pineapple

I like all the fruits and my favorite way to have them all is in a fruit salad.

We grow our own fruit. Nothing is as tasty as waking up and picking fruit to go with breakfast. Need a snack? We take a stroll to the garden. Every one of these are my favorites!

Strawberry
Blueberry
Marion berry
Raspberry
Red Delicious Apples
Jonathan Apples
Barlett Pears
Anjou Pears
Peaches
Plums
Bing Cherries

Laura

PS. Wild strawberries and wild blueberries when we are up on the mountain.

I never met a fruit I didn't like. With the exception of Kiwi fruit. I am deathly allergic to them. Go figure.

Hello All,
Russ, in response to your question...
a bite of avocado followed by a sip of Dr. Pepper
just excites and delights my tastebuds.
Take Care,
Fieldthistle

I just saw it on 60 Minutes. It's a hybrid that's 75% plum and 25% apricot.

LOVE Mt. Rainier cherries, but they are quite expensive around here.

Also love those little yellow "Sungold" tomatoes...they really taste more like a sweet fruit than a tomato.

As far as apples go, I really like "Pink Ladies" the best.

Nothing beats a pink Lady apple or breaburn. I usually average about four apples a day.

mayor al
1. Large Boysenberries ! (a bowlful)
2. Honeycrisp or Northern Spy Apple just off the tree (other Apples considered also)
3. Fresh Pineapple
4. Fresh Peach
5. Fresh Aprium or Apricot.
6. Royal Anne or Napoleon Cherries

A few other folks mentioned apricots too, but I linked to this post out of respect for the memories......
 
This month Good Fruit Grower has a short bit on apricots. I buy them in season, fresh, usually from California. I used to like the dried ones too, but the sulfer dioxide makes me sick, now, so I avoid them. I had not realized that fresh apricots are just not that popular.
 
Apricot trees in an abandoned university research project have been discovered by students to be especially good. Some have a super, super, high brix (sugar content) but are "too pale". They are now being looked at to grow, or to be used to develop a new super sweet, good looking apricot. I look forward to it. I know that Al would have been looking to buy one of the trees.

Blueberries, especially Wild Maine Blueberries.  Lots of anti-oxidants.  They'll keep me from rusting (oxidizing).

My handle speaks for itself. I had the greatest rhubarb pie this past weekend in Madison Ct. My sister's.

Last year, we planted 3 big box store rhubarb plants. One grew, and came back this year...............not enough for a pie yet, though, so we are letting it grow for another year.
 
Table Talk is back, in a big way, with a big , new, bakery in Worcester. The old one still runs too, but today they are strictly bakers, and run by the founding family. They used to process their own fruit, before trouble with a few conglomerate owners. A late friend sold them a 40,000 lb load of squash, every week, in season. Anyway,,,,,,,,,,the winter rhubarb was grown down the street from my house. Roots were grown, outside, and the dug in the fall to be "forced " in a greenhouse. I don't know if they even make rhubarb pie today.
