What summertime fruits are you addicted to?

Asked by janbb (63038points) 1 month ago

I’m crazy about watermelon slices in the summer and find them almost as good a substitute for my sweet tooth as candy.

What about you? Is it local blueberries, ripe peaches or melon that you crave?

Peaches,and cherries do it for me.

Cherries during the very short cherry season, which just ended!

Otherwise, it will be a summer of melon as usual.

@Demosthenes. A Summer of Melon sounds like a novel. Rumer Godden wrote The Greengage Summer.

Nicely ripe cherry tomatoes.

Melons, melons, and more melons.

I love ripe peaches and ripe plums. I love watermelon. I love cherries.

Blueberries and strawberries I love too but I can get them year round.

Pineapple. Usually on a pizza. Or bbq sauce. I am budgeting for a ½ pint of Blueberries every day.

Tomatoes and peaches.

Wife loves the blackberries I bought at the county (Ag center) Extension Service, They put in several blackberry bushes two years ago. Picking and maintaining done by Master Gardeners.

Peaches and blackberries! But the peaches have to be locally grown and usually not from a grocery store. There is a place that grows them locally only about a half mile from my house, so I tend to go there.

Not addicted to any of it. It’s more like I make sure I eat some fruit. I do love cold watermelon when I’m hot. Perfect swimming pool food.

I like nectarines, grapefruit (is grapefruit considered summer fruit?) pineapple, cantaloupe, plums, cherries, and strawberries.

I wish fruit was like a substitute for candy for me, but for the most part, it’s just not the same. I keep trying to eat fruit in lieu of a cookie.

I do eat cherries, cold banana, and chocolate chunk chips, sort of like an ice cream combo, but no ice cream, but it’s very good with ice cream too.

Note: Florida strawberry season is late winter, but I realize for most in the US it is summer.

Maine Blueberries. Nothing like them. About a month away from picking time.
Pies, Tarts. Galette, turnovers, in drinks

@Forever_Free Actually, I prefer NJ blueberries.

BC blueberries on Grouse Mt. in North Vancouver, grow to be as big as oranges; based on that, I guess one could call them blues.

Forever_Free's avatar

@janbb I think a blueberry taste off would be in order. They are small and packed with flavor. low bushes make for longer picking times but worth it.

janbb's avatar

@Forever_Free A taste off would be marvelous!

@Forever_Free my friends used to go to New England once every year or so and they would always bring me back chocolate covered blueberries that were the best you’ve ever had! You can buy them locally but they’re not the same.

Can someone provide a link to worlds largest blueberry for us? It might have been Australia a month or two ago?

Nectarines and blueberries.

Tree ripened mangoes. I’ll be house-sitting for my sister in the Fla Keys in July, and I’m so excited to visit the fruit stands. (If you’ve only had grocery store mangoes, it’s entirely possible that you’ve never had a good mango.)

I’m also a huge fan of Ranier cherries, but every time I’ve been to Seattle, it’s been too early in the season.
