Ha!! You are way ahead of me! I have had this for years – but only found out there was a name for it this winter. I have found that sometimes I can eat certain fruits and sometimes I can’t… it makes it very tricky! I do find that the sensitivity is directly related to how bad my allergies have been – ie in spring hayfever season, I avoid almost all fruit; but in the winter I can be a bit more brave.

Mine is also different from yours in that for me – bananas, melons, grapes, oranges (and more) are fine… but I can’t even look at a kiwi, apple, peaches, cherries (most summer fruits!! sigh) and sometimes I have troubles with carrots and snow peas. Pretty hard to get your proper servings of fruits and veg when you can’t eat most of them!!

Anyway, sorry to have repeated what you already new, but I was so excited to find out it had a name – I have been telling everybody!

Susie: No problems! I was so happy to know what it was, too! Also, I have read that some things are OK peeled but not OK withe the peel on–like apples. I haven’t tried an experiment yet, though…And you are right–I am more reactive when I am having bad pollen allergies. That makes total sense!

Hey there, I was just reading Gluten Free Girls twitter… and saw your twitter about raw cucumber (which lead me to read the others about other raw fruit). I have this same thing (I think). It is apparently called Oral Allergy Syndrome – it is NOT a food allergy, it is related to hayfever! Look it up, there is a bit more info out there than there used to be! Good luck with it – it sucks!
