My Favorite Fruit

In the old country many years ago,
The weather was nice for all to grow,
I used to grow lemons, oranges and figs,
Clementines, pitangos, dates with pits,
Grapes and olives, pomegranates and kiwis,
Bananas, avocados, apples and pears,
Melons and watermelons and apricots too,
Plums and carobs and loquats I grew,
But what I loved most when I was a teen,
Was a huge pile of pistachio ice cream,
