    And yet, I put it back in the fruit bowl when I was done (can't be spoiling my dinner).
  • Panorama Paul said:
    You're stronger than me mate... I probably would've gobbled it before I'd taken the photograph!!

    Ah well I was cooking Sri Lankan Beef & Potato curry and thus the aroma of that didn't entice me to indulge on a nectarine right there and then. :)

    Pleased to see something respectable in your photostream David.

    Ah well after all the attention yesterday I thought I should play it safe today ;-)

    I saw a new fruit in the shop today; it's called a pluot and it has some crazy ideas about taking over our fruit bowls. I'd recommend you try one.

    I mention this because I felt, for a fleeting moment, I had found a pluot fellow fan, or even someone who had heard of them, from looking at the thumbnail.
  • Panorama Paul said:
    I hope you took a photograph of this "pluot" Ben... I've never heard of the fruit!?
  • Ben Dummett said:
    I shall my project for tomorrow; wikipedia says it's a cross between a plum and an apricot!

    I'll report back with picture testimonials of this strange new fruit.

    A pluot ? No, I can't say I've seen those up here yet. Sounds interesting though.
