Which Fruit to Grill?

To start grilling fruits, first you have to decide which ones you want to grill. Pretty much any fruit tastes great after being charred, but ones with the greatest surface area and highest density work best. Tropical fruits such bananas and mangos, melons like cantaloupe and watermelon, and stone fruits like peaches and nectarines all are strong enough to stand up to the grill and give you great surface to get those beautiful grill marks. Chef Luis Bollo of Salinas always cuts his mangos to 2 inches thick to make sure they’re durable enough for the grill.
