    • I thought Guava was native to Soutg America although India produces the most.

    • If I were God for just one day I would make the flesh of dogs, and cats poisonous to human beings during one of their stupid festivals. It would be awesome, and it just might solve the overpopulation problem! 😊

      • Meat is meat. It is only bad because of the attachment you place on the specific animal and your social conditioning. Vegetarianism aside, all animals have the potential to be consumed by humans, or revered. Cows are a perfect example of this mindset that makes humans place a stamp of approval on what animals are ok to eat, and which ones are not. I do not condone the eating of my beloved pets, but what I view as a pet is not universal law.

        • I honestly don't eat that much meat, I could probably go vegetarian quite easily if I felt so inclined, but not not full vegan.

        • Regardless I prefer random dogs and cats to the sort of people who would eat them.

        • I don't think it's racist to not want to see dogs and cats get eaten. Festivals that celebrate people eating dogs and cats are stupid.

  • I really like the smaller mangoes with the yellow skin. But I'm a berry girl, love strawberries and blueberries. And apples.

  • By the way - Dragon Fruit are not an Asian fruit.

    They are native to Mexico and have been imported to many Asian countries because they taste good.

    But they are a Central/South American fruit.

  • I'm seriously fighting the urge to say Gackt.

    Also I love mangosteen and durian the most. You should add them to your Poll.

    • I read your description of durian, now I'm just curious as to how you tried it in the first place!

        • But HOW??? Hahaha. I mean, what made you try it the very first time? Someone you know? Your own curiosity? etc... :)

          • When people complain about things it makes me want to try them. I also love fruit. Great combination lol

            If you cook jackfruit (related to figs) just right, it tastes like BBQ chicken. You can make sloppy joes with it. :)

            • Thanks, that's how I feel about fruit and complaints too! Hahaha! :D I love jackfruit but I'd never heard of those uses, I just eat the raw fruit - although most people here utterly dislike it! I'm so curious about durian, that's why I asked. I want to try it in loco if possible. Thailand has been bumped up on my destination wish list because of this post!

  • Lychees for me. They thrive here in Brazil and we have a few of them here in our orchard. Such a treat! How about you? And why your interest in this?

    • I never tried Lychee. Is the taste similar to other fruits?

      • It's sweet and milky with a hint of earthiness.

      • Mmm... it's so hard to describe taste, isn't it? I'm trying to think about anything similar and I just can't. What crossed my mind was dragon fruit as the closest, yet it's still so far! In fact, dragon fruit to me is more similar to kiwi than anything else because of the little crunchy seeds. I don't know where you live but if you can't actually get the fruit you can taste it (and it's a pretty accurate and natural taste) in some Japanese canned juices. Some even have little pieces of it and you can also experience the consistency of it. It's delightful!

      • You didn't say where the interest came from, was it just a random thought you had because of some other fruit?

        • I’m always interested in food and their origin. I notice that many fruits we enjoy are native to Asia.

      • For me, yes!

        I'm surprised OP never mentioned Durian. I, of course, have never had Durian. All I know is that apparently it's very popular in Southeast Asia and that a lot of people think it smells.

        • Not only 'think', it does smell and it is banned in public transportation, hotels and such! I'd love to try it one day, though!

          People's reactions and descriptions are hilarious:

        • Like I said in another thread, they smell like the armpit of a rotting corpse wrapped in dirty gym socks.

          But they taste (and feel) like buttery banana custard with a hint of onion. It really is yummy.

          You can find Frozen thai durian in most Asian markets for around $10. Thai isn't as sweet as some of the other cultivars but it still yummy.
