The Rules of Combining Fresh Fruit

chowchowhounder | Nov 8, 2012 08:07 PM

I love to eat fruits, but my mom likes to mix all sorts of them into fruit salads. Her latest concoction consisted of fuyu persimmons, apples, oranges, and watermelon. The flavors were altered, and it tasted funny! What went wrong?

I searched the internet, and all I found were rules about not putting together certain types (acid, sub-acid, sweet, melons) because of digestive reasons. What about no-nos to prevent funky flavors? I would really appreciate any insight on this dilemma. Thanks!
