I love summer cuz the melons are sweet. I think for me it's a toss up between cherries, especially Rainier cherries, and peaches. I love lots of fruit, but I think cherries makes me the happiest.

Lol it's a running joke in my circle, the vegan who doesn't like fruit. I love cooking with fruit. Bananas are my go to for any baking and I'll use literally any fruit to make something cool (apple pie, pulled BBQ jackfruit, or even grilled pineapple)There's so many kinds of fruits that I find that shocking. Still blueberries are technically a fruit
I've never tried durian. I used to watch bizzare foods with Andrew Zimmern. He eats all kinds of weird stuff and that was the only thing he absolutely hated. It's supposed to smell really bad but it's a delicacy. It's available frozen in some asian markets.Has anyone ever tried durian? It comes available here where I live, even though it's imported. I've just never been brave enough to try it.
I must add jackfruit to this fruit list, even though we all mostly use it as a meat alternative. It sort of reminds me of durian, but without the spikes over the skin. We also get jackfruit here too, but usually in the Chinatown street markets. It's not something I buy as a treat, like most fruit, but it ends up being a treat for dinner, cause it still tastes great as a meal.
I grew up on the east coast, where blueberries grow quite abundantly, and raspberries too, if I recall. Here in BC we have wild blueberries, but just not the same. They're quite tasty, but definitely appear to be a different variety. Also, they're not nearly as abundant here. Blackberries, well that's a different story. We have lots of those come late August.wild Canadian blueberries, raspberries
