500 Fruits: update #6

As I put up my 2011 to do list the other day, I thought it might be helpful to also update my fruit list here, as one of the things I’d like to do is try 100 new fruits this year. The hard thing though, is that I lost my printed out fruit list. When I do a major update to my spreadsheet, I print out a new version, fold it up nice, and stick it in the little card holder on my key chain. This way I can remember what I’ve had when I’m standing in the store, and I have a place to hand write new fruits. Thankfully I only ‘lost’ 9 fruits. Well, 8 of them because I can’t remember 8 of the 9 I know I had hand written on my list. For whatever reason I remember having the meyer lemon. I have a feeling a few of them were pear and apple variants. Oh well, it just means I get to have them again. Just in case. So I ended 2010 at 79 (quince was the last one). And I’m off to a good start in 2011, as I’ve already had four more, and I’ve got kumquats sitting in the fridge. Here’s my up to date list. I also added that #1 started May 2010. And #80 starts 2011.
