Not Rude Thread ๐ŸŠ

Love how the optimum time for small orange citrus fruits is a good few weeks before Christmas, yet everyone tries their best to offer them as a a generous stocking filler.

Just imagine, one day weโ€™ll be able to easily get sour oranges in the UK. In supermarkets, no less.

Last year, one of the pub regulars who works in the parks brought in some ripe limes from the conservatory theyโ€™ve got there. They were more yellow in colour and sweeter. The opposite of that, I guess.

Down here itโ€™s the season of ripe mangoes. I can tell you those suckers are amazing. I donโ€™t think you ever get them like that in the UK really.

There is something to be said for using fruit and veg at different stages at ripening. Ripe limes are still no real substitute for (I think I meant) bitter oranges though.

The weird thing about very ripe oranges I always find is they are sweet without the usual sharp/sour flavour in the UK but they donโ€™t get intensely sweet like a satsuma does, it just becomes a bit watery. Thereโ€™s very specific โ€˜goodโ€™ moment to eat an orange. Not a fan of them really.

Oranges are odd. Sometimes theyโ€™re mouldy before you buy them but Iโ€™ve zested them had them dry on the outside and juiced them months later with enjoyable results.

Thatโ€™s disappointing. Itโ€™d be more amusing if heโ€™d pranked us all with some lemons heโ€™d bought from Tesco on the way to the pub, really.

You reckon the average lemon is round?

The best mango time in the UK is when the delis ship in the Alphonso mangoes during the season. Itโ€™s a tiny window (and didnโ€™t even happen at all a couple of years ago because there was a shortage) but thatโ€™s the time to get to your favourite halal delicatessen and get some extraordinary fruit.

They come in special boxes! Man I love Alphonso mango season.

Plays for Juventus I think
