The number one is Durian.
In Thailand it is called “The King of Fruit”. The smell is miserable so it’s forbidden in the airplane. But the taste, Oh my God!…..
[The] durian, of all tropical fruits the most captivating. The initial reaction was one of revulsion but those who went on to taste were lost forever, hooked for life. And durian was more than a delicacy: it was a meal in itself, rich in everything the body needed.
The Revd. Peter H. Howes, In A Fair Ground, 1994, p. 82
The second is Mango
There are many kinds of Mangos. From the sour one to the sweetest one. The sweetest one such as “Mana Lagi” (Want some more) in Indonesia is very delicious. You will want it more and more… 🙂
The third is Mangosteen
Here is what a US citizen said about Mangosteen:
R. W. APPLE Jr:
I’M a big-time mangosteen addict, which presents problems.
I could tell you that the flavor reminds me of litchis, peaches and clementines, mingled in a single succulent mouthful, but words can no more describe how mangosteens taste than explain why I love my wife and children. Merely typing the name makes my mouth water. Whenever in my travels I spot a mound of those precious orbs in a marketplace, my heart pounds.
The fourth is Coconut. You could drink its water. And the flesh of young coconut fruit is very soft and delicious. If you are stranded in the middle of the desert and faraway from nowhere and there is no water to drink, just drink the coconut water. You will be safe from thirsty. If you cannot find a coconut in the desert, just eat watermelon. If there is no watermelon, then “Happy Thirsty”… 🙂
The fifth is Watermelon.
Watermelon is a vine-like flowering plant originally from southern Africa. Watermelon is 92% water. It’s a very fresh drink.
The sixth is Peach. Peaches with white flesh typically are very sweet with little acidity, while yellow-fleshed peaches typically have an acidic tang coupled with sweetness, though this also varies greatly.
