Watermellon in the summer.

Kiwi in the winter.

My favorite fruit is probably apples, as long as they are crunchy and fresh. My favorite variety would have to be the Cameo. It's very new and sometimes, it can be hard to find, but it has a wonderful tender and crunchy texture.

I don't eat too much fruit just by itself, but I love the fruit salad my husband makes every Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I like mushmelons for breakfast!!

LuAnn, have you tried Honey Crisp Apples? They're new too and always crispy...I haven't lost one yet! I like the Cameo, but love the Honey Crisp, but they're seasonal.
