Guava (baby)

All the internets and side-of-package says that baby guavas are more fragrant and flavorful than the regular-sized ones, so I should probably have had a guava: original sauce before sampling these morsels.

They look kind of battered and they are PUNGENT but they are sooooer tasty.

Did I mention seedy?  Full of tiny, hard seeds.  And not tiny like strawberryseed-tiny, but tiny like grapeseed-tiny.  So, palpable.  But impossible to bite through, so you sort of just swallow them with the sweet, perfumey flesh.

They taste like a pear-slash-berry.  Pearberry!

Raspberries (yellow)

Yellow raspberries taste exactly the same as red raspberries

but are janky to look at.

Why should anyone have to SEE all the individual raspberry-hairs?  Red raspberries, bless you for your dark complexions.

Currants (red)

So pretty!

So gross.  Currents are bitter and tart.

Maybe they are good in things?

No.  They are apparently delicious as jam, though.

Apple (Jonagold)

Jonagolds!  You are huge.

And crispy.  And applish.

And, did I mention huge?  You are the perfect ferry-snack.

Like backyard apples, but the good kind.

Blood orange

Deceptively orange on the outside...

Suitably bloody on the inside.

Neat!  Except, it tastes just like a regular, bloodless orange.

How disappointing.  Ah well.  More aesthetically pleasing (or freaky) in fruit salads, maybe.

Oh tangerine, what makes you not-an-orange?

Besides being, if possible, more orange than an orange?  You are equally as difficult to peel.

Is it because you are sweeter?  Because of your infinite seeds?


Tastiness:  Sweeter than an orange. Otherwise, exactly like an orange, which is delicious.  So eight.

Ease of Extractability:  See: peel.  See also: seeds.  Five.

Overall nommability:  Forty.

Black Velvet Apricot

Black velvet apricot, hey?

Are you sure you are not just a furry black plum?

Because you look like a furry black plum.  On all sides.

And you taste like a furry black plum.

With maybe a hint of apricot.

Tastiness: The fuzz is, I think, part of the taste, and fuzzy fruit gives me the heebs.  On the other hand, the flesh is delicious - mostly plum with an apricot great-grandsire.  On the other hand, the fuzz.  So, six.

Ease of extraction:  Hold-and-eat, so...easy.  But again with the fuzz.  Maybe if someone peeled it for me.  Plus it sticks to the pit, which I hate.  Five.

Overall nommability: 30
