I'm jealous you guys eat so many fruits. I avoid so many of them because of texture and aftertaste unless I make a smoothie out of it or something. :d 

It's a matter of getting into a sort of rhythm where throughout the day I want to eat at least two or three pieces of fruit, for health's sake :d (and because it's tasty)

Now I really am curious which is the one you eat basically every day :d 

 

If it's pineapple I'm jealous, even though pineapple is just as common here (in supermarkets of course) :p 

 

When thinking about Brazilian fruits and such, my mouth starts watering when thinking about açerola juice :wub: (be it entirely Brazilian or not, I know I've only tried it there so for me it counts)

I eat pineapple every 2 weeks lol

 

We had a variety of pineapple from Bogor - which is smaller (to the point that I can eat one by myself), sweeter, and cheap (like 1 Euro for two).

 

As I live in a tropical nation, most people eat one of these regularly: oranges/papaya/banana

Ah, that's basically what I do with vegetables. Guess I'm more a vegetable person but I have to say I do love apple ssamjang (Korean hot dipping paste that includes apples). 

 

Maybe you could also get into a rhythm with, dare I say it ... olives. :d

The only benefit of eating olives is the weight I'd lose by vomiting my stomach's contents out. No thanks.

What I meant it's that I pick one (or more) of them to eat everyday, usually mango and bananas, pineapple is more like once a week. A picture I just took of my fruit bowl, basically all the fruits I mentioned are there :d

Acerola juice is great, but when in season, it's so common where I live that I prefer other fruits, like guava, passion fruit, pineapple, and the basic orange and lime juices.

Exactly. I wish the "exotic" fruits for us weren't so expensive, but I'm happy with the ones available :p

Now I'm curious, what fruits are considered exotic in Brazil? :p

Brazil is a big country, so maybe some fruits are exotic and hard to find where I live (Northeast), but are more accessible in the South region.

 

Most kind of berries are exotic for me, to the point I have never eaten blueberries, raspberries, blackberries... the list goes on. Strawberries are more common, just like plums, peaches, kiwifruits and pitaya, meaning that I can find them even in a small town like mine, but all of them are not cheap, so I usually just don't pick them. For example, if I wanted 1kg of strawberries, peaches or plums, I would have to pay the same amount of money I spent in that entire fruit bowl :p

Basically the same! The closest chance to “eat” blueberries is from blueberry jam which costs the same for 2 kg of oranges.

 

Regarding peaches, I have never touched an actual peach before :p
