After seeing a hilarious discussion entitled "Let's Fight About Which Fruits Are Good" that included in one of the comments the below chart, I felt inspired to make my own version of a top 10:
1.) Passion fruit - delicious, but so difficult to get! And to open - their rock-hard rind starts out smooth and about the size of the kiwi, and then as the fruit gets more ripe, it wrinkles up into a delicious little geode of joy.
2.) Peaches - I've heard that The Peach Truck is the best place to get them for that rare window when they are in season.
3.) Apricots - so delicious whether in juice, smoothies, or just fresh.
4.) Mangos - messy and challenging to peel but oh-so-worth it.
5.) Pineapple - fun to eat, fresh or dried or canned.
6.) Pomegranates - a lot of work to peel and separate the seeds from the rind, but also worth it.
7.) Raspberries - amazing on their own or layered in a tart. Mmmmm.
8.) Pink Lady Apples - the best apples with the best crunch and flavor.
9.) Strawberries - in season, wonderful on their own or sliced with lemon juice and a slight dusting of sugar.
10.) Lychees / Cantaloupe / Blueberries / Cassis- tied for last place - I enjoy all of them, but sometimes they can be difficult to find.
What fruits would make your top list? Are there any I neglected or forgot to include?
