The first question to ask should be do you even like fruit? I seem to take it for granted that everyone likes to eat fruit. But to my astonishment I have recently met an increasing number of people who tell me they do not eat fruit. It seems a great shame to pass up on a treat of the senses. Fruit not only tastes good but is also a pleasure to the senses, the colour, the size, the texture, and the sheer variety.
What is your favourite fruit? Well, I enjoy all fruit. I would say that my number one favourite fruit is the feijoa, but that can be difficult to obtain. More accessible is my number two favourite, that is the blackberry. Today I discovered to my delight a pear tree in our back garden! This is in addition to the apple tree and the wild berries too. I haven’t discovered any blackberries yet, but I may well do, any day now? Here’s hoping!
