I love fruits.....pretty much all of them.............I call fruit the "Candy of the Gods"....but of course Superman would say that......<LOL>.

As a child, there were 5 of us kids, Dad used to go grocery shopping on Friday and only one of us regularly got into trouble for eating all the fruit for the family, by Monday. LOL
I hope he's smiling.............there's a pear and an orange just outside the pic.....

Fruit & Beef & Ice Cream covers all the required food groups, right?





Berry nice

I'm not a big fan of fruit. It has to be pretty sweet in order for me to eat it. Hence, I really like over-ripe apricots. But if I were to eat a banana, it would have to be on the green side. Oranges? Yes, I have two orange trees and I start eating them as soon as most of the green on the peel has gone away. Strawberries are ok mashed up with sugar added, like on Strawberry short cake - but that point is moot now because I no longer eat anything with seeds in it.

I can only dream of having citrus growing in my yard…

Meat, sugar, carbohydrates, and cheese. The four major food groups. No room for other stuff in there...

Wait! I spoke too soon! I also LOVE fruit! Ketchup is made with tomatoes, and tomatoes are technically a fruit. You can also put any number of different types of hot peppers on any of my food, and peppers are fruits too, right?

Not a huge fruit person. Like Yvonne, I want my banana a bit on the green side. Love ? strawberries. I want to try an orange fresh off the tree.
