I don't know if any of you read Maggie over at Mighty Girl, but she's got a life list of things she'd like to accomplish. One of them is to taste 1,000 fruits. She writes about some of them here.
It got me thinking... how many fruits have I tasted already in my lifetime? I mean, you've got some basics like apples, bananas, grapes, oranges, and peaches. And don't forget about grapefruit, lemons, limes, apricots, pineapple, cherries, and strawberries. Speaking of berries, you've also got raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, gooseberries... And what about rhubarb? That's not really a fruit, now, is it. So, never mind that one...
So, I don't know about tasting 1,000 fruits, but I'm wondering how many we can name? Wanna list away in the comments? (I'll stop now so I don't use up all the easy ones! ;) )
(Hmmm... I forsee a later WF where we use that (compiled) list to count how many of the fruits on it we have each tried!)
P.S. If you've had the opportunity to travel and sample some unusual fruits not necessarily found (or easily found) in the US, please, list away - we'd love to hear them!
