And now, some fruit adventures!!

We're headed out for a little vacation here shortly. I'm planning the places we'll go and of course there's a lot of food involved in this planning (and beer for my husband!). One of the places we're going sells exotic fruits. I've eaten papaya, mango, key lime, etc. but the majority of things on this list, I've never heard of! Any suggestions on what I should bring back with me? They're not all available this time of year, but I can't wait to go exploring!

OOOOOOH suger cane is YUMMY! You get a chunk of it and stick it back in your cheek and just gnaw and suck on it. It's fun :)

Eeek - I did NOT care for sugar cane. Well, I've just had fresh sugar cane juice, and it was gross.

But if they have it get dragonfruit. It's beautiful! The flavor isn't terribly remarkable, at least not that I recall, but it's quite good and in SEAsia they eat it for weight control - it's a diet fruit :)
