Pomegranates are definitely NOT untasty. But this is amusing. I like this one. And lawl at coconuts, though I think it's a reference to something that I can't think of/haven't heard of.

You seriously need to move peaches to the left a little bit and put nectarines in its place.

Randal needs his tastebuds checked.

Did he lose his tounge in a tragic autofiring laser accident as a child?

Meh. Can't say this one is a favorite.

I can understand oranges being in the difficult category, but there is no way oranges should be labeled as untasty. Oranges are the best! Also, I also think Green Apples and pomegranates deserve to be a little higher up on the tasty scale.

I have to agree completely on this chart, except swap the position of the pears and bananas.

Also, 3 threads on this comic. Heh. This one was the first created though (just).

Clearly Randall didn't check his variables well enough and Bananas.tasty was so high it hit integer overflow and went negative.

Randal obviously never had a true green fresh coco nut. The brown dry thing they sell us in supermarket aren't true coconut - they're shitty leftovers!

Go in Dominican Republic, and get yourself a true green coconut for 15 pesos, he'll cut it open for you real easy. Drink it all, then use the corner of a building to split it open, and eat the white pulp.

Aw... man, I want to go back there.. :(

This is the best comic I've ever seen Mr. Munroe produce.

So much so, that i felt the inspiration to create an account on the forum and say how great i felt it was.

I wonder what made him put bananas where they are...I didn't know there were people out there that didn't think bananas were tasty, they are delicious! in fact..if ever get a chance to try the apple-banana that only grow in tropical countries (I'm from a tropical country) you'd be delighted, they are amazing! ..you know, is kinda sad here in the states we don't get all the amazing tropical fruit..oh man if Randall knew, this graphic would be so different.

in short : I am offended by the position of bananas in this chart!! :)

Interesting tidbit: if you happened to catch this comic in the first few minutes after inception, bananas were aligned with watermelons on the difficulty scale (still oddly negative on the taste axis, though). I kid you not: check it out. And I promise, no photoshoppery was involved.

By me. Perhaps by Randall.

How are lemons easier to open then oranges? And Also How can Randal think that oranges aren't tasty?

Why are mangoes not on this chart? Perhaps the y coordinate is too high?

Interesting how the first principal component of fruit seems to have such a positive slope... You'd think you'd mostly trade off between tastiness and difficulty (since all these things are eaten, they would, you might suppose, each have something going for them), but according to Randall, not so much.

Points for including a tomato on a fruit chart. But I can't believe the pomegranate is labeled under "untasty". The fruit of the underworld deserves better.

Why does everyone else like bananas? They're so mushy! They ought to be much farther down than that.

And I actually like lemons.

Hmm. It seems like this is shaping up to be a very controversial topic. ^_^

I agree with damn near all of this, especially oranges and lemons, which are crap. Red apples > Green, though.

I also felt compelled to create an account to comment on this particular comic. XKCD is the awesome :)

Texture and Taste have no correlation for me. I love bananas. Hummus is another delicious food that is not solid.

I have spent all today sitting in my room eating nothing but grapefruit, they are delicious and easy to eat (much easyer than kiwi, they always bun my tongue)

pink apples are the best
I don't like bananas (they remind me of my hands(my hands are bananas))
and grapes are deliciouse

Either you have never had a good banana (try Queensland bananas next time you're on the Aussie east coast) or you're retarded. Bananas are not mushy when ripe. They should be yellow (all over) and have no bruises. Brown flecks mean it's reaching the end of its life.

I like grapefruits. Not plain, necessarily, but I like the juice. Cranberry-grapefruit juice especially.

Grapefruit is an acquired taste.

But fuck are those suckers difficult. Randall really hit the nail on the head there.

Dude, tomatoes are way easier to eat than apples.

ALSO!

Watermelon > other fruits.
