Battle of the Fruits Round 1: Strawberries over Kumquats

Postby IRON CHEF » Fri Jan 28, 2005 9:42 pm

I did this awhile ago at the baseball cafe, and I felt like doing it here for the hell of it. I'm holding a Battle of the Fruits, in which 32 fruits fight it out in a tournament to decide the mightiest of the fruits.

I created a bracket here...http://www.bracketmaker.com/tmenu.cfm?edit=1&tid=92219&tclass=Battle%20of%20the%20Fruits
...not too much thought put into it, I just set it up with a few interesting matchups. Since the Strawberries defeated the Grapes on the baseball side, they are situated on opposite ends of the bracket. The fruits have all been verified for their eligibilty, and look forward to a interesting contest, let the battle begin...

Strawberries to the Final Four!

...and it's not letting me access the bracket - don't know about anyone else... they're trying to make The 'Cuna register!

Yea, I thought that there may be trouble seeing the bracket. If anyone has any experience with that site, please help me make it viewable.

i am a produce manager, so i can answer that... a kumquat tastes really similiar to an orange peel. most people eat the rhind and all. they are pretty sour also.

by the way...i just noticed your pic of kumquats and those arent what they look like. kumquats are really small...about the size of a grape and oval in shape :-) those look like fairchild tangerines

I think there are actual multiple varieties of them. I searched on the Internet and found pictures of both, one picture of the yellow kind on this one fruit website. But then I found this other fancy website that called them bite size fruits. So maybe there are two different kinds of kumquats. Who knows, all I know is that they aren't better than strawberries.

the oval kind i pictured are the most common...their techical name is" Nagami"... there is one other less common variety called "meiwa" which are a little more round...but im pretty sure those are tangerines.
