    I have ordered some cherimoyas as I haven't tried them before.

    I was out in a shop just now and I bought a persimmon and a honey pomelo to try. There were quinces too, I think I read that they taste sour so I didn't buy one.

    I have bananas, oranges, apples and lemons in my fruit bowl too.

    Quinces must be bright yellow, not green, so then they won't be sour. It's one of my favourite fruits.:lick: It's a pity that they can hardly be found in local grocers.

    I tried the honey pomelo, it looked like the big green one. It tastes like a combination of a grapefruit and an orange. It has a thick rind that you have to take off before you eat it.

    They were yellow, I might go back this week and buy one, if I don't like it I will blame you.;) Do you just eat them raw?

    Wow, you can start blaming me right now, because quinces are the matter of taste. You love them or you hate them. :D And yes, i eat them raw but people around here make chutney of them;)

    I was about to buy a quince in the shop just now and decided against it. The recipes I saw online sounded a bit weird to me and I thought it would be a waste if I spent ages poaching it in the oven and then didn't like it!:p

    I did buy some more persimmons for my fruit bowl.:)

    I've eaten quince raw, but can't remember when... it's been too long since I had one! Time to look for quinces in my supermarket's produce section!

    I don't remember seeing a recipe for quince- I just heard they're better cooked and boiled one in a minimal amount of water after I cut it up. It did taste better cooked and turned a delicate pink, even though its flesh was the same color as an apple's or pear's when it was raw.

    I have a Japanese flowering quince in my yard, and those things are REALLY tart. My veterinarian bugged me to give her some because she loved the smell.

    I had a house with a beautiful quince! I cooked some once, raw they were very very tart! I can't remember them cooked, but never did it again. Just really big and pretty flowers.

    I have apples and a pomegranite I haven't felt like fussing with. One apple was "ambrosia". Didn't care too much for the texture- like it was too -I can't explain because it would sound just like apples I like- crisp and juicy with a fine smooth texture. I guess this was like the texture of watermelon rind
