New varieties are constantly emerging through
the vagaries of chance and humanity's
methodical breeding attempts, and we can but
sit back and admire the masterful work of
nature. There are bananas that taste like ice
cream and peanut butter, apricots that are
blue, and berries that make every sour thing
you put in your mouth sweeter than sugar
monarchs once vied to get exotic fruit shipped
to their door, and adventurers trekking to the
edges of the world savored it. You could -and
some do- spend your life hunting down fruit
and never taste them all.
But if you're an obsessed raw foodist like
me, that's no reason to quite trying.
So whether you want to try unusual cold-tolerant fruits or the best the tropics have to offer, get tasting.
Enjoy this list I've assembled from some of the most interesting fruit out there.
