SUMMER WONDERS

I'm always cheered by the arrival of these mini-pears and I'm rather sentimentally attached to them because they were the main Sicilian fruit in season when I first came to live here, just over nine years ago:




As some of you may remember, the tabacchiere peaches [named for their snuffbox-like shape] are my favourite summer fruit of all:


When the angurie [watermelons] start falling off the fruit vans, we'll know that summer is in full swing!

Fruit...probably my favourite food of all. Daily, I eat a lot of fresh fruit. I keep the local greengrocers in business! ;)

No, they're too small to peel, WW. They are lovely, Anne. Me too, Lee.

They look interesting, can they be cooked, I wonder ?

Hi,k Trubes. They are so small I think they would collapse if cooked and there'd be no way of getting the pips out first.
