What a neat idea for a party!

I'm reading "The Fruit Hunters," a book that's a bit monomanaiacal about fruit. I picked it up because it talks about miracle fruit, which is my obsession this week.

Aaaanyway, the writer of the book talks about having a "fruit party" wherein every guest was required to bring to the party a fruit they'd never eaten before.

That sounds really neat! :) It may involve sending people to the asian grocery store, but still, what a cool idea!

What would happen if one of them brought durian though?????

Then we experience the joy of durian once again! Opening the durian was one of the more fun things I did in recent memory, I wouldn't begrudge anyone that experience :)

But it sounds so scary! If we must have it again. Might I suggest clothespins so we can at least have the option of saving our sense of smell. ;3 *laughs*

Sounds like a fun experience. Particularly if you send people to Central Market, unless you get lucky HEB really only has surly red bananas and cherimoyas in their exotics bin.

Is there a time of year where tropical fruit is really big?

A party in which almost everyone brings durian? Oh dear! ;)

Maybe i'll have the RSVP involve what fruit people are bringing. Crap, but exotics are expensive!
