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

White Nectarine

White nectarine!

You look like a regular nectarine.

You taste like a regular nectarine wearing too much perfume, and coated in sugar.

Also, you are difficult to get off the pit.

Tastiness: 5. I'm a sucker for nectarines, but this was waaaaaaaay less nectariney than it was just sweet.
Ease of extraction: 6. Hold-and-eat, but I hate fruits that don't come cleanly from the pit.
Overall nommability: 30. I will stick to regular nectarines, methinks.

Fuzzy Melon

What is your deal, fuzzy melon?

Despite the shoddy photo evidence, you are fuzzy.
But the internet can't decide if you are a fruit or a vegetable, sweet or not sweet.
You are straight-up a cucumber. How is that hard, internet?

Tastiness: I guess this depends on how much you like cucumber? I'm sort of coming around to them, so four.
Extractability: Seven! Just peel and eat!
Overall nommability: Twenty-eight! That sounds about right for a non-fruit fruit.
(PS It's a melon so I'm counting it.)
