Here are some reviews of the weird fruit we had for New Year's Eve.
Asian pear: Very nice! Both crisp and juicy; the texture was so pleasing and the flavor mild. I'll get this one again.
Grapples: Not too exciting. They reeked of artificial grape flavor, but they tasted just like apples to me.
Mini bananas: These taste pretty normal, maybe a bit creamier. They are a very convenient size for little ones, though. The flesh is slightly yellower and seems to brown a bit faster than normal bananas. I would buy them more often if they didn't cost so much more than big bananas.
Persimmon: I had read that these are really sour, but these were kind of tasteless. I'm guessing that it was just poor quality fruit? Anyway, they were edible and very mild, but I don't think I'll be buying them here anytime soon again. Maybe if I'm ever in the South.
