Exotic Fruit

montrealeater | Jul 9, 2011 08:31 PM

A discussion on the local Montreal board recently clued me in to a certain kind of mango available only at a certain time of year, that apparently is the best evah. Without this board I would have continued to eat the regular green/red mangoes (I do actually like these when they're not rock hard, the tartness is nice and I dont mind the stringiness).

Please reply with your favourite exotic fruit(s) and why. Any recommendations? I like starfruit, although I'm not sure this is exotic anymore, and I also like these yellow, hard (thin, but hard, they have skins/shells that crack) fruits filled with a slimy mix of seeds and...slime, but tasting wonderful (again, sweet but tart, lovely). Maybe they are a variety of passionfruit? Any recs for the sweet/tart flavour combo?

Any exotic fruits you don't love? I find papaya too sweet but full disclosure I have never had a fresh one.
