# 74 Fruits have always been a constant favorite for my family. We always have one, two, or even three different kinds in a fruit basket on our dining table. The Pixabay picture I used as a header looks very similar to what we usually have. Maybe add bananas to the basket as we seem to always have some of them around too. I was just looking around my kitchen and inside the fridge; I realized at that particular time I had more than usual number of fruit varieties available. I counted 10 of them; there were bananas, apples, oranges, mandarins, and lemons in the fruit basket. I also saw grapes, cut up watermelons and cantaloupes in the fridge. Then there were a couple of fresh young coconuts and a box of dates that my husband had just bought sitting on the kitchen counter. And a few days ago, a friend brought some fruits for us too. They were gone now but they would add to the different varieties we already had. He brought some freshly picked guavas from his trees. Also some mangoes and jackfruit he bought from the fresh market. We love fruits! Image credit: Pixabay

Your family really loves fruit! i have several kinds in my refrigerator but don't think I have ever had 10 or so fruits at the same time! I am the only one in my house and can't eat that much fruit before it spoils! Good for you family! Bet you don't eat too many processed treats like donuts or cookies as i would imagine you would be full after eating all that yummy fruit!
bananas are constant here. then a seller drops by every day offering pineapple and papaya. one fruit i really liked was dark cherries. i've only ever known maraschino cherries on cakes and desserts. it's interesting that people are able to grow guava and jackfruit trees there. why did you buy fresh young coconuts?
I've seen my friend's guava trees down here... They are not big trees but bear lots of guavas. I'm not sure if jackfruit trees grow here - my friend bought the jackfruit from the fresh market but they had actually been frozen. My husband and my middle kids love young coconut water. He'll buy them once in a while when he sees them in the store.
@sishy7 i remember climbing a relative's guava trees when we were young also here in our neighborhood. i almost slipped. here jackfruit can be cooked in coconut milk when not ripe, and eaten when ripe and added to desserts. there is a fresh coconut stall here in my neighborhood, but i've never really liked coconut water (buko juice). i prefer buko pie and buko ice drop with mongo (red beans) and buko ice candy. hehe.
@alberello75 Oh, I don't usually put anything when I use my own image. But when I don't use my own image, I usually use one from Pixabay because I know the images there are free public domain. And although I may not need to note it, I'd like to, just to be sure no one thinks it's my image or something.
