    Yes. They are quite good; I found them at the market last summer. Expensive, though. I think they were like $12.99/lb, or something outrageous like that.

    It is hard to say a favourite but here is a few I really like:

    Guavas - delicious and really strong flavor.
    Lychees - look like a blob of snot, but taste dang awesome.
    Yellow Cling Peaches
    Nectarines (any brand of nectarine)
    Apricots (must be fresh and not over ripe or soft)
    Raspberries (possibly my favourite fruit, but must be fresh)
    Strawberries
    Bananas (so I can pretend I have a big willy [​IMG]).

    These little red Dacca bananas are nice. The flesh is slightly more creamy than a regular banana, and has a hint of cherry, taste-wise. They take forever to ripen though. [​IMG]

    The fruits pictured are cherimoya. They are native to the Andes, like such fineries in life as alpaca sweaters, vicuña blanket and chinchilla fur coat.

    The ones I had a few days ago are very sweet, taste like a blend between Pinoy mangos and Peruvian pears.

    I've never had an Andean. What are they like?

    I enjoy a good nectarine in the summertime. Fresh figs are also a favorite.

    i didnt like the red bananas. something tasted a little off about them. its prolly cuz i didnt let them ripen enough


    also chiromoyas are soooo good. if you havent tried them cactus fruit is also really really good. just be careful when cutting them. prolly good idea to wear gloves at the very least

    , so sweet and delicious.


    Yeah nice, I prefer regular mikan though. I spent a year in Hamamatsu and it seemed like everyone I met either had a mikan farm or their dad did. I was given so many bags and boxes of the things I couldn't eat them all.
