I was just posting on the "What's the last thing you put in your mouth?" thread, and, looking at the top of the page, saw that sturgis recently et a bosc pear.

I'm not sure if pears are my least favorite fruit, but I'm certainly not at all fond of them.

Bananas, yes they are a cause of heartburn for a number of people.

I only like bananas when they are a certain way, not totally yellow, a bit of green at the top. Organic ones are much better I've found, really. Fortunately Wally likes his bananas the same way.
It's really like I can get bananas to be eaten today, tomorrow at the latest.

We refer to the way we like them as "white people bananas" as I've found that Hispanics generally pick the riper ones. If they have preteen or teenage sons at home, they buy about 150 pounds at a time.
One time at the store, a mexican lady and I were reaching across each other, each aiming at the bunch that was on the 2 extremes of the bell curve. We both looked at the others, made a face, then laughed.

Avocados, I like them, but I did get a bum one the other day that really did taste like soap. I had my mouth all set for one too. I cut into it, and took a small bit and went "ptuu!!" I thought maybe there was soap on the knife, but no, tasting another bit with a rinsed knife was the same. Had to toss it.
I wanted to put avocado in fajitas so I grabbed one I'd just bought. As soon as I put the knife in it I knew it wasn't ripe enough yet, and I'd ruined it.

So, I plugged the knife into my chest.


I have never successfully eaten a papaya.

@Izzie,
why not apples?

Apples tend to be rough in my tummy. Applesauce is ok.

None so far.

I'm not fond of some store green apples, but I don't blame the apples for that.

I guess if I had to pick, red delicious market apples of advanced age.

@chai2,
Papayas and mangos are a tad overrated.

Not a fan of kiwis either. The combined strawberry and banana like flavor tastes sinister to me. Mad

Give me some time. I may be able to think of one I don't like.

@tsarstepan,
I like all of those, they are fabulous when freshly ripe.

Well, to me. That's all fantasy here in NM.
Who knew I was moving to a shriven place. Probably everyone else but me.
Always with the lessons.

Grandma is that you?
She's the only other person I know of that spoke that way of pears and used the word ET.

Meanwhile, it's nice to have a thread credited to me, even in such a roundabout way.

Least favorite fruit for me would be persimmon, not too happy with figs, no real use for mcintosh apples, although I'll suffer them if I must.

@djjd62,
I feel the same way about figs (the texture thing), plus they're too sweet. Dates are too sweet, too...they might not be a fruit, though.

Guava. I never ate one, but had a neighbor in Miami with a guava tree. She let them rot on the ground and they smelled like strong cheese wearing dirty socks.

Bananas would be okay except for the taste, texture, and smell.

Creative description!

I think bananas are just great. They're like... the perfect food. Unless you're allergic to them or something.

@Irishk,
or they're $16/kilo - as a result of a cyclone in Queensland!

@margo,
I think ours are mostly from Hawaii. They were $.49/pound at Kroger's the other day.
