Sexy Fruit for Valentine’s Day

February 12th, 2010 | Fruit Maven

There is something sexy, enticing and adventurous about fruit. In some ways trying a new fruit is like falling in love. It requires abandon and risk. You have to search for it and once found, you have to be patient and careful so you don’t bruise or damage the beautiful nectar inside. Sometimes it works out and you have the most amazing experience, and sometimes you just end up wondering why you wasted so much time admiring something so dull that when you really think about it, kind of smells like vomit.

And so in the spirit of love and Valentine’s Day, I say ditch the flowers and party it up with FRUIT. There are lots of ways to go, so you have no excuses.

Sweet Hearts:
Seckel Pears, Cherimoyas

    Wow, I did not know Passion Fruit was so slimy looking. I love the juice, but I am strangely bothered and fascinated by the inside ozone of flesh. I can’t wait to try a Cherimoya! I am ready to swoon. :)

    I live in San Clemente…and very active in our Garden Club.
    My mom has a 2 1/2 acre Cherimoya orchard in Fallbrook. Her crop is not great this year but it is fun to prowl around the orchard looking for fruit. She is not selling it.
    Would you like to visit?
