What's the worst fruit after you bite into it?

I say pear or nectarine.

Whatever's going, really. If a piece of fruit is bad, and you can't tell until you bite into it, then the experience just generally sucks.

Forced to choose one, though, I'd go with peaches.

There's only about 3 good pears each year.

This topic seems to be a disappointment, although I didn't expect it to go very far.

What's wrong with pears? Maybe if you get them from stores that sell you unripe pears that are hard as rock but even those will soften and ripen although not as good as tree ripe. Comice, Bartlet, Seckel and French Butter Pear are favorites but D'Anjou will work too.

I thought Durian fruit would turn up here but maybe no one who posted has tasted one. Any tme someone mentions a food they don't like I always think they haven't had a good example.

Blueberries, those available in the UK leastwise, haven't got a whole lot going on for them either.
I once had some at the house of a friend who was into all the snake oil, super foods, anti-oxidant bollox and they were utterly tasteless.

Never been keen on pear fruit, but it is a much more handsome tree than the apple, so I have planted a few.

They were probably old blueberries. Time is not a healer when it comes to fresh produce.

Also, blueberries are North American plants, so the ones you had were most likely farmed in either the UK or Europe. While farmed blueberries can be great, it's the wild ones that are extra special.

Also, lots of fruits and produce are grown for shipping and not taste. Especially if they're planning on being shipped worldwide.
