I worked in the fruit/vegetable section of a good supermarket when I was younger, so I got to try a lot of stuff... I love passion fruit, very ripe cherries, strawberries, blueberries, lychees and sharon fruits. Raspberries and blackberries are great for making traditional danish kryddersnaps (schnapps with fruit/spices added).
I tasted "dragonfruit" (we bought it as dragonfur) and Durian in Thailand... The dragonfruit is beautiful but tastes like watermelon. Durian smells like rotten meat and tastes even worse.

Grapes: I only eat muscat, Concord and sometimes champagne. They are not available at all times but I feel that their superiority renders all common grapes unworthy.

It's best to just ask your grocer. There are specifics with regards to sourcing that he would know about that no website could tell you.

JEH and RC are (presumably) dining elsewhere.

Mandarins may be easier to peel; however there is something about slowly peeling and eating an orange that i find relaxing.

Braeburn apples. Slightly tart, incredibly crisp, perfect alone or with melted caramel. Clearly superior to all other apples, in my opinion.
