Anyone else on Planet who doesn't like Fruit??

Alice | Apr 23, 2001 09:03 AM

I feel like an alien. I almost never desire fresh fruit (except, and this seems odd, I do enjoy most tropical fruits - mangos, et al. -- and, also, berries). Fruit juices and shakes and ice-cream are okay, too. But plain apples, oranges, peaches, etc., leave me cold. (Which, by the way, is the only way I'd eat them - COLD and very, very crisp and hard.) If a brunch order arrives with fresh fruit, I have to pick it out and segregate the bits -- even if I eat some of the fruit, I hate the thought of it 'tampering' with my savory omelette or bacon. There is almost nothing I will not eat - I have cravings for almost ALL foods, from plain to just plain weird - but from early childhood, I had to be forced to eat fruit. I'm sure I'm missing out on one of Nature's most wondrous gifts. But I just don't like it! Wonder if anyone else suffers this culinary affliction.
