So how do you take a fruit platter from meh to mouth-watering? When it comes to the flavors you serve, a great fruit platter offers a variety of tastes and textures. You can’t serve only melon and expect to wow anyone. Make sure you include a good mix of flavors ranging from sweet to sour and everything in between. We love to start with melon and then add pineapple and citrus, which add a dose of tart to excite your taste buds.
