Eating healthy is a way of life now. Fruits should be a part of our daily diet, not just to avoid fats and calories but to have antioxidants as well. studies show that fruits help prevent cancer and gives us the necessary vitamins we need daily. Apples, oranges, grapes, bananas are common fruits. What fruits have you tried which you loved and hate the most? For me, i like eating fruits, i haven't tried anything that i disliked. I love marang (can be found in the Visayas and Mindanao area in the Philippines) and atis. I also like durian and lanzones. Watermelon is also one of my favorites.

The favorite fruit of me is apple. First of all, apple is a healthy fruit as all known, but I love it most since apple let me eating full, let me studying, let me growing up . Surprise? My parent are farmer in China and apple are the most important income of my family. Without apple, my family will famish, aha. Now, we are no longer keep life with apple, but apple has been my favorite fruit even food for ever. China is a big country, not any fruit can represent it I think because it have many kinds of fruit.

i like apple as it is more healthy and good, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. but in sumer i would like to take juicy fruits like grapes, watermelos and all. in winter i really don feel like having fruits at all. i lso like papaya and i also prefer to take juices of other fruits like oranges and all, and sometimes the strawberry milk shake. i know healthy eating is realy necessary to be healthy and have a good living and yes fruits dont make us put on fat and it is a very good thing but only possibility is the sugar content in a fruit.

Yeah...I like apple,too. You wrote a good sentence: an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Pretty nice sentence! haha...In hot days, I prefer to watermelon. Watermelon is juicy and it can quench thirst. Anyway, fruits are good for health.

My favorite fruit is pineapple. Watermelon also is liked by me. I eat a lot at my summer vocation. Nowadays,the transport is well-developed.Thus, the kinds of fruit are much more than before. In my opinion, juicy peach is our country's repreaent fruit.

I'm very bad when it comes to eating fruit! I just don't eat fruit at all or not for a long time! I love bananas, they are very good for you and give you a great energy boost when you need it most. I'm a keen cyclist you see and so bananas definitely work for me. I live in the UK, I don't know what fruit we are particularly known for. Anyway, I must get into the habit of eating more fruit on a regular basis. Andrew

Mango is the Philippines' national fruit. We have a sweetest variety. Banana is also a favorite especially the lacatan variety. Durian, I think, is the king of all fruits. I love it. I can stand the smell. It has this rich and luscious texture not found in other fruits.

I would have to say both apples and oranges represent North America. Apples from the east coast, oranges from the west. It's all good :). I like grapes, the green kind especially. I don't like pears at all. They taste so funny to me.

I also love eating fruits. Apples, grapes and oranges have much supplies in town. Grapes quite expensive so just settle for apple and oranges. Almost everyday we have these. Mangoes however are very good for dessert. We always have bananas and mangoes. So many fruits available and really good for the health. Water melon, pine apple to add more. We're much luckier to find fruits wherever we may go.

I have so many favorites....strawberries, banana's, navel oranges, seedless grapes, pineapples, golden delicious apples, mango, blueberries, peaches, cherries, melons, star fruit, guava, coconut, blackberries & tomatoes. I love to make homemade smoothies. I take mango sorbet & pineapple & coconut juice and make an awesome smoothie. Also take your favorite fruits & yogurt and mix in a blender it is a great & healthy drink.

Well I live in South Africa, im not really sure about which fruit is our national fruit. But I would have to say my all time favorite would be a grinadella. The sour, sweet combo in these treats just give my taste buds the blast!
