    The kind that grow on trees or bushes I mean.

    Mine would be nectarine, mango, and pineapple.

    I eat a banana or orange every day or so but perhaps because of that they don't seem so special to me. Bananas are convenient. Orange slices finely chopped add a nice flavor to my daily bran mush.

    Unfortunately mangoes give me a rash if I eat a big one; the smaller yellow ones are safe for me.

    Oh, an anti-sizist rice queen, eh? icon_cool.gif

    For me, a fresh homegrown tomato right off the vine at the end of a bike ride says it all.

    Well Lumpy, at least we know you're not a size queen. The rind of the mango can contaminate your skin with urushiol, the same irritant in poison ivy, oak and sumac, but at lesser concentration. If you know you are sensitive, you should wear gloves if you have to handle a mango. In theory, people who are sensitized to the rind can still eat the flesh of the fruit once it is separated from the rind. Others don't want to chance it, and that's O.K. too.

    I love all fruits and vegetables.

    I was that weird kid that ate all his vegetables at dinner time. I hated red meat. Chicken and fish was the most I'd do. I ate healthy before I knew what healthy was.

    Hmm, I might try that and get a green and red mango. I have a box of disposable nitrile gloves I bought ages ago and rarely use. Thanks.

    I was just remembering something. A possible counter argument to this theory is that when I eat the bigger green and red mangoes the rash is on my lips. I first discovered it when I ate a lot of mango at a catered event where the mango had been sliced and cubed; in that case I also got the rash elsewhere, but it was so long ago I don't remember where, except that I made it worse by putting some crap on it.

    So I suspect you're right about the urushiol but I think that it's also in the flesh, but perhaps to a lesser extent.
