I have a few answers, so here are my fruit awards: Best tasting: Mangoes. Just absolutely delightful. Perfect sweet and sour combo. Best price to proportion ratio: Pineapples. Bruh $2.50 for ALL OF THAT. Absolutely. Flavor also killer - I’m a citrus slut [edit. It’s spiritually citric because it’s spicy, but yeah not actually citrus] Best “wtf is that” award: Dragon fruits. They taste great, they’re their own bowls as you cut them in half and eat them with a spoon, and the red ones dye my shit red which just entertains me tbh. Most refreshing award: Watermelons. Whether I come home tired from a workout or am sitting at a beach - I feel like life is okay again when I eat some watermelon slices. Best on-the-go snack: Pears. Not quite the appeal of apples flavor-wise, but it’s like 80% there without the offensive CRONCH like that dickhead who decided to eat an apple in a quiet room. Best Charcuterie board addition: Grapes. Fml I remember that grapes and cheese is a combo and eat nothing but that shit for a week straight.

I was going to comment but damn dude you summed it up pretty good. One thing is perfectly clear to me this Redditor fruits


nogoodimthanks

I came here to fight anyone talking shit on the golden god that is mango and here you are just preaching the gospel. Carry on my brother!


NotForKeeps626

Mango is heaven to me


circusgeek

I didn't think I liked mango until I finally had a ripe one. Now I know.


Supercharged_Z06

Amen. The hard, picked way too early variety found in most US grocery stores just don’t do the mango justice. Getting one that’s truly ripe and fresh off a local fruit stand on the side of the road near where they actually grow natively is simply mind blowing. Fond memories here of visiting Costa Rica when mangos are in season…


bigboywords

I laughed way too hard at ‘I’m a citrus slut’.


NotForKeeps626

The best bit 😂😂


abhilashmurthy

This guy fruits


maxreverb

But where is he getting $2.50 pineapples? And where is he that peaes don't taste better than apples?


Sir_TonyStark

This is the best fruit ranking I’ve come across in some time 11/10


SumptuousSuckler

I agree with everything except pears taste better than apples


PapiSurane

Also, I feel like a ripe pear is too juicy for an on-the-go snack.


obxsoundside

Those pears Harry and David sell at Christmas time have spectacular flavor whatever variety they are.


EricTheBread

Good list, but in what strange world is pineapple a citrus fruit?


Snail_jousting

Pineapples are not citrus.


alittlemantis

Perhaps acid slut is a better term. Acidic fruit slut.


ElMothMan

Feels like I’m taking crazy pills. Why isn’t this being called out more?


TSB_1

Have you ever had an Asian pear? Not an offensive CRONCH, but a satisfying one. Also, excellent flavor.


Willystronka

I agree with most of the above when you take categories individually, but the ultimate combo has to be the banana, great taste, increadably easy to peel, no sticky fingers, and the peel can be used to make your archnemesis slide into a nearby deathtrap. Great on the go and still nice to eat when at home too. Any anyone who dares dispute this fact can fight me. I'm covered in banana peels, trying to punch me in the face? WHOOPS, guess it just slipped of me and hit the spike on the wall (it's a spiky wall, deal with it), wanna kick me in the nuts? You're now so slippery that you're spinning until you vomit, all i have to do is go outside of your vomitradius and you'll tire yourself out, checkmate other weaker frutists.


pm-me-you-singing

grapes- bite sized, delicious


Normal_Bodybuilder

Anything eaten at peak ripeness Nothing worse biting into some dry, mealy, flavourless fruit


ThisGuyLikesCheese

Green apples is the only fruit that is good when its not ripe


nandorkrisztian

I only like plum when it's still green a little bit. More sour and harder texture.


Herrben

Mangosteen I ate those bad boys in Thailand, so good.


darksiren1990

This. Everyone should know of this fruit's existence.


blueshiftglass

The best where they are grown. Loved them in the Philippines. Every one I’ve tried to buy at a supermarket in the US was nasty.


harmonicpenguin

Came here to say this. They are phenomenal.


redditor_pro

I know what is a mango, what is mangosteen?

Oh wait, i know this, just did t know the English name lol

Peaches


Onto_new_ideas

I agree. But only peaches that have been allowed to fully develop and ripen on the tree. Peaches that are round, fully fleshed out, perfectly juicy, practically bursting with perfection. You can't stack these peaches or they will bruise. They don't transport well, so you'll never experience a perfect peach if you live too far away from where they are grown. So they can only be perfect in summer. Only made better with homemade ice cream.


ruthisaperv

Peaches from the store are usually no-flavor garbage fruits so when summer comes around I'm buying up everything they have a the farmer's market


Onto_new_ideas

In my area you can get good ones from the grocery store, but only in season from local growers and you have to know how to pick them.

Raspberries. No prep


TheeternalTacocaT

This is a lonely comment, props to raspberries, my favorite of the fake berry club


Pure-Tangerine-2664

I feel like raspberries go bad so quickly. And majority of the ones you buy at the supermarket have zero flavour


ajp022

Yep. But when they're just right... amazing I like to freeze em and put in my yogurt


Tlaughs

I was spoiled by a raspberry garden when I was younger; I would eat a cereal bowl of frozen red and golden raspberries almost every day because we froze so many each year. Now that would be as expensive as a light cigarette habit fml


wishiwasinvegas

Mmm Raspberries. Those amazing soft little bastards melt in your mouth❤️


Lady_Lion_DA

Raspberries! I have some issues with them going bad quickly, but they are so tasty. Also, nothing will beat the wild raspberries I had at summer camp in the mountains.


Least_Exercise2127

The milky way smells like rum and tastes like raspberries

Strawberries


Dr_Cindebar

Strawberry gang!


poopybuttfacehead

I'm in Korea right now and just saw a pack of 6 as big as your fist! $150 for the box. It's about to be Lunar New Years and I guess giant, immaculate fruit is a baller gift to give.


mlbo0p

Crazy! I’m in Australia and you can buy a punnet from $2 - $7 depending on the season


poopybuttfacehead

Regular strawberries sell for about that in Korea. I'm talking about 6 strawberries bigger and more immaculate than you've ever seen in your life. Wrapped up in fancy shit and a gift box.


luxii4

Yeah it’s all about presentation - those Asian fruit boxes. Taste is the same, they just like how perfect they look. Fruit is just a big deal in Asian countries. It’s prominent as Asian weddings with a ritual of giving fruit to the in laws and the types of fruit and having an altar with fruit for ancestors and gods. I went to a Korean dance club and each booth had a phone and groups of males would call groups of females to dance. We did not have to pay much since the men pay for drinks. And at the end, the waitress charges the men’s table hundreds of dollars for a basket of fruit and the women get to take the fruit home. I found all this interesting since I am Asian but not Korean. So if you complain about ladies night having no entry fee, you probably won’t like these clubs.

You are both wrong. The correct answer is Neil Patrick Harris playing sir Elton John CAUSE HE IS THAT FUCKING GOOD


CaptainHahn

Fuyu Persimmon


cinaminalemon

Oooooh a good persimmon is sweet like honey and has a texture I've never been able to find anywhere else. A bad persimmon is like I ate a bunch of grape skins.


luxii4

Try the Fuyu ones they are not astringent like regular persimmons that are not at peak ripeness. They are not as sweet but crunchy like an apple.


HeimdallSilverhand

Banana (easy to peel)


Cl0ckW0rked

Finally! I'm surprised I had to scroll this far down to find another banana lover.


Skippn_Jimmy

The only downside to bananas is, for me, their window of goodness is very limited as they have to be soft but not...too soft. Usually 3ish days


dodong89

Easy to peel, easy to eat, delicious. Can do so much with them too (banoffee pie, frozen bananas, banana pudding, banana pancakes, etc., and where i'm from banana cue, turon, among others)


riceballonigiri

And delicious! My fave honestly 😍


Meamater

Bartlett pears


King_of_da_Castle

Pomegranate and it’s not even close.


onegoodbackpack

not for the fruit layman, but truly the king of fruits. can't name another fruit that imprisoned a goddess in hell for an entire season. I guess you could argue apple, but that bitch Eve had it comin', am I right Old Testifiers!?!


optiongeek

High work to reward, but yeah. Not even close.


hungrybf

To be honest, the work is part of the reason pomegranates are my favorite fruit. It’s a whole experience. The feeling of tearing it apart, the little plinking sound of the seeds hitting the bowl… It’s meditative.


miawalace94

Came here to show my poms some love. The most horrible “to-go” fruit ever but SO, so good.


SageMunchkin12

Tunas Rojas, red cactus fruit. I used to get them at this little Hispanic market in a town I used to live; they were so cheap and so good! Tunas verdes were amazing too; you could easily fill up on them. 😇


legendariel

Prickly pears!


RATGUT1996

Tangerine or Grapes.


toigz

A bowl of clean grapes. My take too. Little balls of pure fruit goodness. Blueberries/strawberries/raspberries are great too when it comes to that, but they can be expensive, and grapes are juicier/or waterier, which I kinda like with fruit. Similar to a watermelon but that has the rind. Give me an entire watermelon with no rind and maybe that’s my choice. Or a watermelon sized orange with no rind.


Prompus

It's been scientifically proven it's Mango, Cherries, Watermelon and Peaches

I came to post tomatoes. I keep a little bowl of cherry tomatoes to snack on, and those little flavor bombs pack more punch than any other fruits! And think about pasta with tomato sauce, and pizza, and chili.. if we lost any other fruit would we lose so many iconic meals? heck no!

I work in the kiwifruit industry and like the gold kiwifruit the most. Cause I get them for free I eat them for about 8 months of the year. We start harvest in about 6 weeks so there'll be fresh NZ kiwifruit heading your way soon.

Mangosteen


Chucknorris1975

I first tried them in Thailand. The most delicious thing I've eaten. Tried them back home...egh. Very bland.


Pat_thailandball

Everything tastes better when it’s eaten where it’s grown


m00nsterdotcom

I've heard of them but can't find them where I live. What do mangosteens taste like?


[deleted]

Like mangos but steenier.


Recent-House129

They are like a tarter lychee with the texture of a perfectly ripe plum/peach. So fucking good when they are fresh (basically have to be in southeast asia)

Yes! I had these in Asia and could not get enough. Sweet and tangy with an indescribable flavor.

I tried a custard apple for the first time only a few years ago and love them. I have a small tree now that I've planted in my yard a couple years ago. I think I'm still another 2 or 3 years away from it producing fruit though. I can't wait

Especially those little easy peel mandarin oranges that come in the mesh bag. Man oh man they’re perfect.


COVID_19_Lockdown

I, a man of culture, prefer Tangelos and Blood Oranges


timmyisserpico

In my weed smoking days, I used to love oranges. They're somewhat healthy, and they help with both the munchies, and cottonmouth. So much better than filling my gut with junk food and soda.


Lavender_Philosophy

oopsiepoopsee

Plums


LilPeaHen

Like most, I'm a big fan of most of the common fruits: berries, mangoes, peaches... But I DREAM about loquats. Loquat trees became very popular in my country in the 1960s and they spread rapidly so they were all through the suburbs. Every year when loquat season came around I would hop from yard to yard literally making myself sick eating buckets of loquats. Most people didn't even realise the fruits were edible so left the fruit to rot The trees were eventually declared a weed in some areas. Many also ripped them out to prevent the spread of fruit fly so I haven't had loquats in a few years but I literally DREAM about them. There's not much I wouldn't do to eat a bucket of loquats right now...


showmethesnacks

I came here to see if someone said loquats. Disappointed I had to scroll so far. Loquats are incredible! Trees with fruit that you can reach from the ground are hard to come by now where I live because assholes would break off a whole branch to eat while they walked home from school. Although, even 25 years ago as a child I had to climb the trees or on a roof to get the best of the bunch. I was always sent up with a pouch to fill for all of us because I was the smallest. The best trees are on private property. Good thing I know someone with a a few big trees in their yard so I can get plenty!! I've been watching them grow recently, they'll start ripening real soon! I'll be ready for them.
