    My girlfriend loves those, I still have not acquired a taste for them.



    (Also I have not eaten meat for like 20+ years, never been fitter or healthier.)

    No, I think we both take some things more seriously than this thread deserves. :)

    Ok, so let me get this straight:
    It isn't vegan to eat foods that use assisted pollination, because that uses animal labor. It is, however, perfectly fine to eat foods picked by dirt-poor immigrants earning a slave wage doing whatever they can just to scrape by?
    Does anyone else see the cognitive dissonance here?

    I have no idea, I usually would buy a couple and leave them out a day or two and then eat them. This year no luck at all, either hard as rocks or really weird soggy consistency and not sweet at all.

    I noticed that too. And not just peaches, pears and apples are the same way.

    Define "perfect" in this context.

    I have found this year's peaches & nectarines to be much the same as other years. Some are clearly picked far too early & it's all a matter of timing. But when you get them at the right time, there are few things nicer.

    I did manage to get some greengages for the first time in ages, & they were very disappointing - very dry.

    Yeah, the ones I've bought have been hard and they started to rot before they had ripened.

    Well first of all it has to have the natural fragrance of peach, soft but not soggy, and taste sweet and sugary like a peach should taste like.

    Recently I have had some Royal Gala apples that are amongst the best I've ever tasted.

    Pears yes I agree those too but I don't eat much pears, maybe if it's at the office in a fruit basket. Because of the unusual heatwave this summer we have had really good strawberries and apples though.

    It's funny you should say that because I saw a news report when it was hot saying that we would have a bumper crop of strawberries this year, & that they would be cheap as a result. But they were no cheaper than usual & I wasn't at all impressed. Of all the fruit that isn't a patch on what it was when I was a child, strawberries remain at the top of the list. Certainly not peaches or apples.

    The price on berries in the shops here is beyond crazy sometimes. We always buy the fresh and cheap at the market. Crap I missed this falls harvest market.

    Your last point is not based on any sort of evidence. I challenge you to research the position you hold. ;)

    My wife was a vegetarian for most of a decade. at the end of it all, she was taking a fair amount of diet supplements because of the meat based nutrients she was not getting. Lots of people can do it, but that doesn't mean that you can do it indefinitely without repercussions.

    I think it was bacon that finally did her in. She says that there is NOTHING in the vegetarian world that compares to bacon.
