Yes I have had a mango, not a fav of mine. I don't really like mango's or papaya's.

A boysenberry is a cross between a blackberry, a raspberry, and a loganberry. They are a dark purple almost black in color when ripe. It's softer than a blackberry, but it also lacks the blackberry's large seeds. It was developed in California, where people still favor them. The bushes / vines have very prickly small thorns. I love them!! Boysenberry pie is a favorite of mine-
even better warm with some vanilla ice cream on top

I really do not eat much fruit. I eliminated it from my diet last year when dropping some weight because it is so high in sugar. At that time I added a blueberry capsule to my list of supplements as an antioxidant booster, though. They are convenient and readily available and do not spoil.

Lychees are a sweet, fleshy, grape-like fruit. I had them as a dessert in a Chinese restaurant - they were peeled and served floating in a syrupy sauce. This made them look like eyeballs, which was kind of creepy, but they were good.

Yeah, I've heard that durians are one heck of a fruit. They must taste extraordinary in order for people to keep eating them.

Have you ever had a cherimoya? Those fruits are very, very, very good.

OK--it is very hard to explain. Durian is more like an experience. I hold my nose when I eat it as do others. It tastes unlike most fruits I would almost say it is a cross between a green apple, avocado and almonds in a custard. It also depends what kind you eat. Lychees are like pears I would say but sweeter. Mangosteens are like sweet tiny pears perhaps. I do not know how to explain them either just very sweet little whitish fruits. Jackfruits taste like pineapples kind of. Hope that is some explanation but it is actually hard to explain a fruits taste when they are unique fruits!
