Everyday I would go and order one with some exotic sounding name and I had a different one each day because of the sheer variety of Amazonian fruit. I mean there are seriously hundreds of fruits available, many of which were never translated into Portuguese. These cafes also specialize in little sandwiches and other delicacies, often deep fried, which I suppose negated all the fresh fruit consumption. That and the coco frio were awesome ways to spend $10 a day.

I love all of those SE Asian fruits except durian, and I find dragonfruit to be the most overrated fruit of all time. No taste. It might be killer if dehydrated, though.

Starfruit doesn't necessarily wallop you in the maw with flavor, either.

ETA: Its also expensive here.

Yeah that's true, but starfruit still has a slight tang that is pleasing, in the better examples at least. I've eaten dragonfruit all over Asia, and it just doesn't really have anything, even if you squeeze some citrus on it.

I rally enjoyed dragon fruit bc it was so novel but thinking about it it's basically like a mild kiwi.

Not a fan of durian. Not very pleasant to eat. Big fan of cherimoya and cactus fruit. Cactus fruit is delicious but I've learned to be careful around them.

Dragon fruit is shit. It's like $12 a piece around here and tastes like a castrated kiwi.

Never had cherimoya. Always see it, but never thought to try.
post #2227 of 3005
Ripe cherimoya is awesome. But to me it's rather a south European than tropical fruit. (apparently it's of South American origin though)

Medlar is yummy, too.

This apple is perfect.

I'm serious when I say that I'm upset I am about to finish it, holy hell it is that good.

How do you prepare them or what's one of your favorite, easy ways?
post #2232 of 3005
Slice them about a third of an inch thick, saute in olive oil (or duck fat) add chopped parsley and shallots (or garlic) toward the end. If you like, add fresh bread crumbs with the herbs and/or drizzle over some chicken jus to serve.
