    Hmm...where do I start. Being of SE Asian descent, there's not a single fruit from there I don't like. My favorite has to be lychee, then its cousin the longan. I also like custard apple, jackfruit, durian, dragon fruit, rambutan, asian pears, and countless others. Basically, if it tastes sweet and smells aromatic...I'd enjoy it. Basically, all the fruits you can find here: http://www.vietscape.com/travel/fruits/index.html.

    Nothing beats biting into a cold, sweet orange on a late summer night.

    Of oranges, I like mandarins the best as they are easier to peel. My favorite cultivar is the satsuma mandarin.

    Guava.
    Tasty, but I hate spitting out the damn seeds. Same with Pomegranates.

    I've been thinking about this. For the uninitiated, is there some kind of resource that tells you when a fruit is in season? I'd find that really helpful in the produce section.

    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.

    Mrs. FC and I are ready to leave for dinner. For dessert, I think we shall order the tapioca or chocolate cake rather than the fruit this evening.

    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.
