I love acidic fruits. Tropical fruits are a new interest of mine. I know of and grow quite a few, but I haven't tried many.
1.) Passion fruit- (purple P. Edulis)
2.) Mango (Nam Doc Mai)
3.) Peach
4.) Raspberry
5.) Blackberry

Pawpaw grown in italy are pretty much the same varieties grown in usa with the notable exception of Prima 1216 which was developed by an italian grower.

Sure,I tasted several Overleese and Sunflower fruits....Asimina grows very well here in North Italy !! I also tasted (but only one fruit) of Prima 1216 and it was even better in flavor !!

i have been getting 1 or 2 strawberry fruits (mutingia calabura) a day
today i got 5.
one was a bit over-ripe, and 1 was peak ripeness.
the over-ripe one was a bit watery, and also a tad bit of alcohol was present.
the ripe one, was perfect.
tasted like a sugar cube, but, with more flavor.
i am more and more impressed with this tree.
Maybe because its still new, but,
 every morning i cant wait to go see if there are any ripe fruit.

i think i will have to add it to my top 5

What a tough question! 

1)Cherimoya/Atemoya/Rollinia  (can i just say annonas?  come on!)
2)Mangosteen
3)Pulasan
4)Longkong/Lanzones/Langsats...  not totally sure which ones i've been buying at the farmers markets
5)Dragonfruit (Yellow Megalanthus and Frankies red)

honorable mention goes to apple bananas, jackfruit, jaboticabas, avocados, raspberries, peaches,  okay... stopping now  this could go on for days.
With 3 acres of prime real estate for growing tropicals... why not create my own garden of eden?? Work in progress

Persimmon?  I am thinking of chopping down the perismmon tree and replace it with a guava,cherimoya,or pomogranate tree.

Durian
mangostean
sugarapple
coconut
caimito
are my favorite.
