Two fruits which I especially enjoyed when I lived in NZ were the Feijoa click here and the Persimmon click here. Tasty :-)

I can't say I've ever heard of the other.

I had an Edoe the other day. I was slightly disappointed but that might have been down to my cooking technique rather than the vegetable itself.

I like bananas, certain other fruits i have to be carefull of as i am allergic to them, :(

An old friend of mine used to make banana cake. He would often ask me to get some ripe (black) bananas for him.

It is nice to see a wider choice of such fruits available and some of them are very nice, but the old once (apples, pears, etc.) still seem to be the favorites and out sell the newer once.

Is now a good time to bring up the issue of carbon emissions created by flying these exotic fruits in?

I've never been able to get close enough to durian to want to taste it, but durian ice cream is disgusting.
