Yes. My mother grew cacti, so we had them on occasion. I always let her do the gathering & peeling :)

I didn't know that kiwis come in colors...

P.S. The one I asked about on the previous page is 'pitaya' or 'dragon fruit'. It comes from a cactus.

I know what you mean & I have no idea, but then I have to ask, What's the difference between hybrid & GMO?
I found a short answer to the question: "Unlike hybrids, which are developed in the field using natural, low-tech methods, GM varieties are created in a lab using highly complex technology, such as gene splicing."
If you're interested, here's the long answer. Pretty good article.

When I was in Oregon, we pulled over to the side of the road where a farmer was selling oranges from his grove.
They looked just like this, green on the outside, delicious on the inside. (I don't know if this photo is untouched.)

Durian

The edible flesh emits a distinctive odour that is strong and penetrating even when the husk is intact. Some people regard the durian as pleasantly fragrant; others find the aroma overpowering and revolting. The smell evokes reactions from deep appreciation to intense disgust, and has been described variously as almonds, rotten onions, turpentine, raw sewage. The persistence of its odour has led to the fruit's banishment from certain hotels and public transportation in southeast Asia. (TFD/Wiki)

Your raisin pie is what made me think of mince pie :)

Apple pie. My dad (rip) made the best. Unfortunately, I didn't inherit his pie-making skills.

OMG, that looks good. I've not heard of it. If it looks fairly easy to make, I might give it a go. Any tips?
Of course, I'll have to buy the crusts :) but I'll do the rest from scratch.
Regarding baking skills coming from practice, there are some things I can bake without a blink and not a lot of practice. Pie crusts, not so much.

Pomegranates are ripe this time of year, and my neighbor has a tree, so I don't have to buy them.
They're better from right off the tree, anyway.

↑Is it the fennel that looks like grilled onions?

I've found a few Tourtière recipes, and the one with cloves, cinnamon & allspice looks the best (I'll keep the anise in mind), plus it has a potato in it, a selling point for me :)

I've never used pomegranates in a dish. I just like to kick back, open it up, and have my way with it, like this.

Rambutan. I don't know anything about this fruit, but it's a tropical fruit and related to the lychee.

I like quince, it's such a versatile autumn fruit. It can be used to make jams, jelly, preserve, liquor or even wine. You can add it to a cup of tea or green tea, too. Yummy! :)
