    With the exception of peaches........... and now home grown strawberries. I always found shop bought strawbs to be rather bland but this year our home grown ones taste like.. well proper strawberries, lovely.

    Loads of peaches on my peach tree, hardly any peach leaf curl this year, praying for a warm summer and hopefully a good harvest.

      I'm not a big fan of fruit other than citrus types or rhubarb. I will eat apples, blueberries and cherries when their baked in a pie. And of course candied fruit in my beloved fruitcake.

      Home grown strawberries always smell so much better than the grocery store/imported ones but I only like smelling them, not eating them.

      When I was a baby, I wouldn't eat baby food desserts if they had fruit in them so I guess I am true to myself.

      Now, citrus - yum :)

          I like tinned mandarins, just so much easier than peeling the things.
          Really like grapes, seedless ones are best.

          When I was a kid, as a special treat in the winter, we would have a raspberry pie, made with raspberries out of a tin, with evaporated milk poured over it.
          I liked it, probably wouldn't now though.:biggrin:

            There is no comparison between shop bought and home grown. The strawberries in the shops at the moment are watery and their price is eye watering.

            After home grown strawberries we will be eating gooseberries, then raspberries and blackberries right the way through to October. I like them on their own, in a crumble or pie, with ice cream, custard or double cream - pretty much anything.

            Haven't had evaporated milk for years but I remember really liking it, even better was condensed milk.

                The only fruits I like are soooo expensive in the shops, soft fruits in particular. I bought some raspberry canes last year (Aldi) they seem to be coming on nicely :) My strawberries need replacing, past their best now, but I haven’t got another sunny and suitable spot, pots might be the way to go?:noidea:
                I would love blueberries but at risk of sounding like a tv commercial ‘ aren’t they difficult to grow?’ :lunapic 130165696578242 5: Seriously though, it would be pots again and space is an issue.
                I am growing physalis for the first time in years, I can eat them like sweeties :snorky:
