No answers with 'oranges' or 'bananas' or anything like that!! Proper exotic please!

Mine are as follows in no order:

Fruit....

* Medjool Dates - My idea of heaven.

* Mangosteen (nothing like mango. The inside looks like a bunch of garlic) Nicknamed the 'queen of fruits'. Very sweet.

* Asian Pear - Very refreshing, very watery, very nice!

* Durian - Very smelly, very nice!! - Nicknamed 'king of fruits'.

* Rambutan- Lovely to look at, better to eat! Much like a lychee

Veg...

*Eddeo - Like a potato, but creamier.

*Plantain - love to bake with dark brown sugar and cinnamon

*Jerusalem Artichoke - Very nutty with a hint of garlic.

*Casava - Makes lovely crisps!

What about schnozberries? (They taste like schnozberries.)

I've never really tried anything that exotic? Mangoes are heavenly, though, and so are Medjool dates and FIIIIGGS.

Isn't that that nasty stench blob they ban in various public places cause they stink the place up? I'd rather have me an improper mango, thank you. Hell, I'd still rather lick my cat's butt then try a durian

I don't have any idea about exotics or non exotics.. i buy what's in the store.

Also exotic to you may not be exotic to me.

Wow i typed exotic too many times.. the spelling looks wrong now.

yup, that's the stuff!!



smells like a dirty sock wrapped in a dirty diaper. Strangely enough, the smell actually enhances the flavor.

I wouldn't lie...

Jujubees! I've never had fresh, but I love the dried ones. They taste a bit like orange peel actually, I can't eat a lot at once. But I like them.


And lychee is amazing!

LYCHEES

Aint had a whole one in bloody years

buy lychee juice whenever i see it though.

Found a box the other day It was gone in an hour. each 200ml litre contained your daily vitamin c dose... and i drank a litre. guess thats why my developing cold disappeared haha.

Anyhoo

um

i dunno... dont go anywhere that sells exotic stuff.

Id love to try them all though, mmmm fruit.

Ive only ever seen a durian once, in chinatown london. it looked well nifty! I screamed in excitement haha (never heard of them til theres a durian chia on neopets, im well cool me)
