My favorite is nectarines but unfortunately they are very seasonal and usueally are expensive. What I eat most often is bananas because they are cheaper and available just about year round. Next would be apples which are not cheap most of the year but at least they are available and work well when cut in half to eat one half and save the other for the next day.

It's a tie between apples and bananas. I used to only enjoy a banana with my cereal in the morning, but since I began eating organic fruit, I am enjoying apples again. I never cared much for apples because for the last, I don't know 7-10+ years, apples had very little flavor. They looked very appealing...big, shiny and bright red. They were juicy, but had very little flavor. Of course now that I've done much research into organic fruit, I realize that regular apples are being grown to only look good. Apples aren't supposed to grow much bigger than a baseball. They aren't supposed to have a shiny red skin and they are supposed to have a great flavor. Regular apples don't and I don't think I had one for at least 5 years. But then I ate an organic apple and WOW, the flavor was just incredible! It tasted like apples did when I was a child... when they didn't load the soils with tons of chemicals andwhen they didn't spray tons of chemicals on the plants and fruit to keep bugs away. I'm now enjoying eating fruits again because the fruit I eat is grown naturally, the way fruit is supposed to be grown...without the man-made chemicals to make them grow bigger in a quicker amount of time. And I think I'm healthier and my family is healthier because we are getting all the nutrients that comes from naturally grown fruit.

I am from India, I love the fruit which is normally known as the King of the fruits in our Country - The Mango! mango is a fruit which comesin various shapes, sizes, colours and tastes depending upon the variety. We have more than 100 varieties of this fruit in India and there are special events like Mango Exhibihition or Mango Festival,where common people get opportunity to see and taste various mangos at one place. mang is a oval to round shaped fruit with a central tough seed which is covered by thick fleshy pulp. Initially all the Mangoes are green in colour when on tree and depending upon the varietird they take various colours from light yeloow, to Oragngish yellow to redish yellow. They are very aromatic and are very sweet and tasty. Taste, aroma/flavour, sweetness is typical to the variety,The most common variety is Sapheda which is commonly eaten by one and all is basically grown in southern part of India, bt noew a days it is grown evry where, It is sweet and bit sour with a typical flavour/aroma. This is grown in abundance thats why this variety is cheaper and they atr accessible to every one!Regarding the nutitive value of this fruit, it is rich in Proteins, carbohydrates in the form of gars,Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C eyc. The common varieties of this fruit are Totapalli, Bangina palli, Neelam, Langda, Alphanso, Dasera, Chausa etc, There is a special variety of mango which is about the size of a foot ball and it is having the hard textured pulp resembling inner part of coconut and is vey sweet. This Mango is waten when it is green only and when the flesh is tough as it gives a tasty textured material to eat. These are normally seen growing in Southern parts of India and in some parts of Eastern India too! In south they are known as 'Munta Maamidi Kaaya' There are other varieties which have pulp inthe form of Juice and these are rather sucked to have the juice instaed of eating them. They are real fun to enjoy this type of Mangoes. We call them as Rasila!For the information to you and to our members, there is a person in Lucknow who has managed to graft more than 100 varieties of Mangoes on a single tree!! And every year he harvests all the varieties!
