New fruit for Rosh Hashonnah

Can anyone recommend a new sweet, delicious fruit for the holiday? Every year I spend an arm and a leg for a tiny fruit that no one in my family will eat.

      That's because you have to cook it. I've never tried eating a raw quince, but I can't imagine that it's very good.

      PS: if you thought the raw quince was bad, don't try raw olives.

    2. Try prickly pairs or a pomegranate.

      1. we usually have apple pears, which arent realy apples or pears but taste goode nonetheless.

        1. Yeah, Zev, it was my host who didn't know about cooking the quince. As for olives, there was a funny segment on Ham on the Street about that last week!

          BTW, a good "new" fruit is an aprium. It's like a pluot in reverse.
