There are one or two on here I have to say I haven’t tried! And I worked in the produce section of healthfood stores for years. Have to search them out somewhere sometime.

Thank you to everyone who contributed!

    • Zachary Shahan

      my favorite wasn’t on the list either — Papaya. & i even got to write the article announcing the competition! :)

    Mangoes totally rock. Those fruit images are delectable; wish that I could eat them.

  • Rachel Shulman

    Huzzah for sapote! My favorite – I never thought it would make the list!

  • Jake Luer

    Pomegranate? Anyone… anyone?

    • David Anderson

      If it wasn’t so annoying to harvest…

    • Zachary Shahan

      I would maybe give it the best-looking fruit award!

    I can’t believe DragonFruit made it! #7 no less! Now I want some and the farmers market probably doesn’t have it any more. Poo :-( At least there’s watermelon in the fridge!

    Well, I would happily eat any of the fruit on this list… and I would happily eat a LOT of it!! I agree on peaches – I would put them ahead of apples for sure. I don’t think I could narrow my favorites down to the top 10 though…
    Thanks for the interesting article! It’s fun to see what the general consensus was.
