    Durian would be my favorite. Was raised in South East Asia, and the tropical fruits there i.e mangoes, lychees, watermelons are all much-loved.

    I was hoping that more people would catch the reference to ernest. I agree with Flame, Southeast Asia has the best fruit in the world. I like jackfruit a lot as well: [​IMG] And of course, the rambutan: [​IMG] Though I prefer lychees slightly more. Full Canvas, good luck with ordering the dragonfruit. I've seen them a few times at Central Market for $20/lb, while in Hong Kong they were only a few cents a pound. They're very easy to peel but the flesh is not that sweet. The texture is similar to kiwi. The flavor is rather unremarkable though it is difficult to argue with its beauty. At Chinese prices it's a good deal considering how much mass you're getting, but I would not pay anything near $20/lb. How much did your grocer quote you?

    Wusthof Classic 9". I like it because it's an unusual length; Henckels only does 8" and 10". Here are all my babies.

    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.

    It eats clean,no messy juices to drip everywhere. Tastes good. As a topper, have been one as well....it's all good.

    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.

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