Two of My Favorite Fruits
Apples, grapes, and oranges abound here in Canada; and I don't fancy them mainly because, in the Philippines, they have long become as ordinary as bananas, mangoes, and pineapples.
I'm more fascinated with fruits not commonly found in my country—like cherry, dragonfruit, nectarine, peach, and plum. Among these fruits, my favorites are the stone-fruits cherry and nectarine.
A stone fruit, or drupe, is a fleshy and juicy fruit that has a single large seed encased in hard wood, called the pit or stone.
