Durian is one of the sweetest fruits I've had. Mmmmm.

Try Ku Gua...Bitter Melon. That'll put some lead in your pencil. Cicory is another good one.

Don't forget what I posted elsewhere:

'I think most of them were bitter. For example, apples used to be so bitter they were mostly used for cider. We only recently figured out how to isolate & reproduce sweet strands. Now this rare treat can be bought cheaply, in bulk, & all year. Trader Joes sells 2 types of strawberries: sweet & extra sweet. But wild berries are mostly tart. Ever had a wild orange? Most are tart seedy & small - only edible in season. In contrast, store-bought oranges are seedless (nearly), sugary, brightly colored, and have thick fibrous skin that is better for shipping and easier to peel.'

Few, like bitter melon or durian, have been allowed to persist as sour or non-sweet fruits - and note how popular those are in America :)
